I am an artist/cartoonist/illustrator and native New Yorker and for as long as I can remember, I have always loved to draw.
Fascinated by Hanna-Barbera cartoons, Jim Henson's Muppets and Dr. Seuss books, I taught myself to reproduce their cast of characters before I even started school. As I got older, my obsession with their work would later combine with a passion for an exciting new from of artistic expression, know today as hip-hop.
Growing up in New York's Hudson Valley I was fortunate enough to experience hip-hop's early years and I soon immersed myself in this dynamic and diverse culture of art, music, dance and poetry.
These early childhood influences coupled with my years in and around NYC have resulted in an artistic style that is vibrant, urban and spirited, suitable for a wide range of markets, including but not limited to, children's books, greeting cards, editorial, educational and humorous illustration.
Whatever your requirements, from comics to fine art, I will be happy to discuss and exceed your project needs.
