Sample Illustration

I have drawn since childhood.

Although highly trained in the verbal arts,
I constantly strive to replace many words
with a few good pictures.

Filling the Page with Pictures...
Value Proposition Economical communication with the short-hand wit and wisdom of a cartoonist's approach. Although my rendering styles can vary from cartoony to realistic, the underlying principle is to quickly deliver the strongest message with fewest strokes.
  • Pencil sketches, marker comps, and storyboards
  • Pen & ink drawings: technical or comic
  • Painting: all media
  • Digital imagery: Photoshop, Illustrator, and more!
  • Instruction: drawing principles, graphics software

When faced with a blank page, I always found it easier to fill it with pictures than with words. A career was born.

I drew comic strips from elementary school through college. I painted portraits. I consorted with underground cartoonists and drew a strip for the Berkeley Barb. I drew motorcycles and flowers for t-shirts. I drew Army tanks and anti-aircraft missiles for instructional slides. I drew charts and graphs for Bechtel. I drew maps for Chevron. I drew storyboards for video and multimedia. I drew consumer products. I drew advertising comps. I painted logos. I created editorial illustrations in various media.

Equally at home with a pencil, pen, paintbrush, or mouse, if it can't be communicated with words alone, I can always do it with pictures.
