From 1995 - 2016 I've created websites that ranged from the first NHL Web Site to Carlson Marketing Groups Employee Site while freelancing at many of the top agencies in the Twin Cities area.
Although I have been illustrating ever since I got my first crayons, my professional career began in 1978. Since then, I've done advertising, educational, medical, technical, sports , and musical subjects. While I often create realistic, technical images, my passion is caricature and cartooning. On occasion, I've been able to combine my cartooning and scientific talents, such as when I produced graphics for Newton's Apple, the award-winning KTCA Ch2 TV show.
In 1978, I began creating design, illustration, and typesetting before the desktop publishing revolution. Since 1985, my Macintosh-based studio has produced logos, catalog design, print ads, package design, brochures, newsletters, and posters. Litho pre-press , keylining, layout, design, and typespecing; many years in all aspects of screenprint pre-press and printing.
