“One picture is worth a thousand words”. 

The basic function of illustration is to communicate a message in a more efficient way that can be accomplish using words alone.  Many thoughts and concepts can only be illustrated.  Oft time’s illustrations are used to amuse, entertain, excite, shock, anger or any one of a plethora of emotions to attack attention.

I think one of my strengths is an ability to say it without words.

I’m primarily a Technical Illustrator skilled in various media; pen & ink, pencil, watercolor and digital, vector and bitmap.  To create digital illustrations I prefer, several programs used synergistically; CorelDRAW, Corel Paint Shop Pro, Painter, and SketchUp Pro.  Although many of my peers prefer Adobe products,
I find these tools to be most efficient and capable of executing whatever I conceive.
