I've been doing Illustration & Commercial Art since 1987. Illustration and commercial art differs from fine art, as its function is to be part of a design to illustrate a point, product, concept or place. This often takes the form of inset or spot illustrations to illuminate the text, from instruction manuals to children's story books, and come in a variety of styles and techniques.
Illustration is a useful tool to create a design style or impression for young or start-up businesses, web-based businesses, service based businesses with no tangible products, and also businesses that are not very photogenic or are difficult to photograph.
I can provide Small, Medium and Large solutions for different budgets or requirements. Each illustration is individually tailored to a client's needs and created for a specific purpose.
The second section shows a series of LOGO's and brand designs I have designed for Brick & Mortar businesses and Online businesses. I have created hundreds of logos / corporate identities over the years - ever since I was young I've loved the letterform starting with hand-lettered Calligraphy to full-color brand design for Corporations.

You ever notice that young-budding artists are always drawn to the human skeleton, sometimes even blood and guts? Not only is it the fascination with the human body and anatomy, but also the best teacher for a beginning Artist. I had always wanted to do it professionally since I could remember, so I set-out and did. I worked at a teaching Hospital that serviced every Medical Specialty one could imagine. From Pathology to Dermatology - Orthopaedics to Physical Therapy - Internal Medicine to Neurosurgery - Radiology to Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery and everything in between. I worked closely with every department and loved every minute of my eight years there. (1989-1996)
Medical Illustrations are used widely for a host of reasons. From the simple to the most complex issues, Medical Illustrations effectively explain general anatomy orientation, drug pathophysiology as well as what happens step by step during a surgical procedure itself.
Medical Illustrations clearly and concisely explain the nature of any injury and/or surgical procedure. The end result being a visual presentation that puts the viewer in the subject's shoes accurately conveying the degree and scope of the medical issues at hand.
A medical illustrator is a professional artist with advanced education in both the life sciences and visual communication. Collaborating with scientists, physicians, and other specialists, medical illustrators transform complex information into visual images that have the potential to communicate to broad audiences. The work of medical illustrators promotes education, research, patient care, public relations, and marketing efforts.
A medical illustrator is a visual problem solver. Background research, including reading scientific papers, meeting with scientific experts, perhaps observing surgery or a laboratory procedure, is often an integral part of the creative process.

(1984-1988) I was a technical Illustrator for the US Governmant. (this was the time right before the PC) I didn't have the aid of a computer program to make that perfect elipse or straight parallel lines. Most of the time I was inside a locked Vault because my illustration projects were Classified Secret. At the time it didn't seem so cool, but now, 25 years later it's an extremely unique part of my artistic background.
Technical illustrations generally have to describe and explain the subjects to a nontechnical audience. Therefore the visual image should be accurate in terms of dimensions and proportions, and should provide "an overall impression of what an object is or does, to enhance the viewer’s interest and understanding.
