Joseph Barbaccia is a Delaware, USA based artist. He studied fine art, design and illustration at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia before beginning his professional career. Joseph’s illustrations have been presented as covers and interior pieces for magazines, books, and more. “My years in the design industry helped me understand that successful illustration is one half inspiration and one half collaboration. And that working with other professional creatives can make assignments even that much more rewarding. I’m confident that my ability to meet deadlines and my exceptional illustration style have the potential to produce award winning works. Contact me if you’re looking for someone who can get the work to you on time, in budget and in the style you expect.” His illustration work is created with polymer clay and is three dimensional in form; similar to a bas relief. Joseph has written articles about his unique style for Polymer Arts magazine. His work has been featured in Luzer’s Archive 200 BEST Illustrators Worldwide, Illustration Annual 57, 3 X 3 Illustration Directory, Polymer Journeys (The Art and Craft of Polymer), Creative Quarterly, Illustration West 54, and the AOI World Illustration Awards. Joseph is a member of The Society of Illustrators, The Illustrators Club of Washington DC, Association of Illustrators, Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and The International Polymer Clay Association.
