You're Such a Card!
The cardboard pieces all start with ink drawings like this one (invariably of machinery or duct work). Call it Duct Soup.
About the Artist
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, and after 30+ years living and scribbling in Yellow Springs, Ohio, I moved to Delaware and am absolutely LOVING the place. My wife and I bought a beautiful house close enough to the beach (9 minutes down the road) and are establishing residence and setting up shop. We kinda feel like we won the lottery.
My new studio is big, and hopping. Right now, the studio is a bit discombobulated as we wind up some construction down there, but my art still rocks our absolutely cavernous basement. And the writing gig still rolls on—my book # 8, Starting Your Career As An Illustrator, is on the shelves. Check it out!
I teach for two neighboring town art councils, as well as work part time as a writing tutor at a local Community College. I still do illustration gigs, but on both the academic and freelance fronts I am somewhat semi-retired; which is just fine.
All the guitars are out. I don’t play as much as I should, but I’m gonna change that.
