Tell a story. In today's highly competitive marketplace, it is essential to convey compelling ideas quickly. Nothing does that better than pictures. There are times when photography is inadequate. Illustration has an advantage over photography when telling a story or demonstrating a complex idea because it's not limited to physical reality. Illustration is at the core of my skill set. I earned a degree in illustration in 1975, and have been working in that market ever since. My portfolio includes virtually every kind of illustration, from simple technical illustration to cartoons, animation, 3D renderings, photo-illustration and editorial illustration.
