Art & Illustration

Since 1977, I have illustrated a variety of different projects for many different publishers. I've painted covers, illustrated interiors, rendered game boards, drawn maps, made playing pieces, art directed, and desktop published many projects. I have illustrated magazine articles, drawn editorial cartoons, comic strips, calendars, T-shirts and advertising art. The following are a few that I'm most pleased to say I worked on:
