illustration examples

Here are some examples of my work. Disney work for theme parks in Tokyo and Orlando. The centaurette from Fantasia, and a portion of a mural from the Tower of Terror attraction in Tokyo. Also children's book illustrations.

animation backgrounds

This is from a Don Bluth film, "Thumbelina". The film itself has many shortcomings, yet contains some beautiful artwork. I cut my teeth as a background painter on this film.

The top image is from Disney's Pocahontas.

Looking back over some animation backgrounds that I painted long ago, and thought I'd share them here.

This is by far the most "Famous" background that I painted while at Disney. It was a beautiful moment between father and daughter in the story as well as a pretty picture (MULAN).

This scene was featured in promotional spreads in TIME magazine, and newspapers around the world. Disney also used it for reproduction cels.

book jacket cover

I am still searching for the best design for this book cover. This one is intended to be less dark and less seductive. Which do you like the best? Which would get you to pick the book off the shelf? That is the question.

Sci-Fi book illustration

I have been working on a couple of book illustration concepts. Just rough at this point, but hope they wind up going somewhere.
