Specializing in portraits, caricatures, calligraphy.
My work includes fully understanding the needs of clients, authors, publishers and businesses, and developing creative original solutions. Portraits and caricatures convey the inner life of subject.
Styles range from wildly edgy-outrageous to sober, classic, and dignified.
Services include editorial illustrations, book covers, political cartoons. Original art to commemorate special occasions, corporate gifts, invitations, posters, advertising.
Editorial services are also available. With over forty years experience in publishing and editing as well as illustrating newspapers, including creative countless ads and brochures, I have a pretty good grasp of what's needed for effective communication.
Electronic delivery preferred for art to be published in print or on web. (Allow time for delivery if original art is required.)
What the Seller needs to start the work
If the subject is a person, several different photo references (informal candid shots as well as formal portrait photos) should be provided if possible; at least one should be high-resolution. As much information as possible about the subject's personality is helpful—this can be done with a phone call or two.
Everything you can tell me about the intended purpose of the job is also useful. If it's a book cover, I'd like to see the text. If it's an advertisement, tell me all about your business, the product and the customers you're trying to reach.
