After 30+ years of working as a commercial artist in the old animation studios
 and then as an illustrator and writer of children's books, this site will now show
 my present work-- a mixture of political cartoons done for websites
 and a local newspaper, and more serious figurative paintings. 
As always, the challenge for the contemporary realist is to come up with
compositions that resonate deeply in the viewer's memory,
long after he or she intially views them.  That challenge still motivates me,
 even in a world of digital image saturation.
