When I ventured out on this Illustrator gig, I wanted to illustrate Adventure Stories. I studied the great illustrators of the 19th and 20th Centuries, and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

I wanted to illustrate the books one could find in libraries, Back When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth. It was called "literature".

I spent about 10 years, honing my skills, and learning to illustrate digitally. Sadly, the Children’s Illustration market left me behind.
I don't do whimsy.There are few illustration opportunities for Adventure illustration for children,using adult characters.

I have the improbable goal of bringing these stories back.
