'The Sketcher'

I began my career in New York City after growing up in Chicago and studying Animal Behavior in college. My work has appeared in dozens of magazines, in books, on posters, in galleries and has been animated for TV commercials and shows, including BETWEEN THE LIONS on PBS and DAVE'S WORLD, as well as for movies like THE STEPFORD WIVES, live theater productions and the web. I had the privilege of illustrating The Metropolitan Diary in THE NEW YORK TIMES for eight years and various columns in THE BOSTON GLOBE for many more years. One of my animated pieces was included in the retrospective of The Ink Tank, the animation studio founded by R. O. Blechman, at MOMA.

I recently emigrated to Portland, Oregon.
