I have been creating images, tickling words and developing strategies to help children and people who act like them learn, laugh, purchase and/or play for more than three decades. Other than my work as a freelance illustrator/designer since 1983 I have also worked as an adjunct faculty member at Avila College, Kansas City, MO and Central Missouri State University where I taught courses in illustration. I spent a few years at Hallmark Cards, first as an artist and then as an art director and performance consultant. While in Kansas City I served as a board member and then VP and President of the Kansas City Art Directors Club. Specialties: Editorial illustration, humorous illustration, packaging design and illustration, signage, children's market materials, concept/product/character development, identity design, and educational materials.
