As a graphic artist, photography, illustration, and writing are all components of my trade. Becoming a regular contributing author for hobby publications such as FineScale Modeler and the IPMS Journal has allowed me to put all of these creative disciplines to good use in the writing of informative and entertaining magazine articles illustrated with my own photography and how-to drawings. I have also created clear, detailed step-by-step instructional illustrations for past clients, and recently, model kit boxtop illustration. Below is a sampling of such work for your consideration. If you have need of an artist who can create promotional / instructional literature & product illustration, please feel free to contact me.
