I grew up in Erie, PA. Art was never considered a real occupation there. Apparently being more stubborn than I realized, I went on to receive a scholarship from Columbus College of Art and Design, graduating with a BFA in painting. During college, I worked as an amusement park caricature artist- traumatizing mid-westerners for five dollars a drawing. I am probably still cursed to this day by the ones that had braces!
Some cool projects I’ve worked on have been Art Fusion with the world famous tattoo artist, Paul Booth. It is a paint jam with usually three or more artists that try to work simultaneously on one large canvas in an attempt to create a painting that looks like the work of one person. Artists come from many back grounds so the end results tend to look like a new mystery person that never existed.
I was involved with the Joe Bonham Project along with other great illustrators like the late Jeff Fisher, Victor Juhasz, Michael D. Fay, and others.
