Biography

A recent transplant to New York, Jack is a member of the Society of Illustrators with a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, an MA from Syracuse University and an MFA from Hartford Art School. I am often asked if I plan to be a professional student.

The answer is "No" of course, but I am a student of Illustration as well as an instructor, writer and practicing illustrator. After 25 years of illustration in various 3D applications, Illustrator, Photoshop, Painter and anything else I could stuff into a computer, I have settled into painting digitally in Corel Painter, Adobe Photoshop and ArtRage with occasional side trips in oil, on real paper! My primary interests are in portraits and imagery for children, but I also have successfully completed many editorial and advertising assignments. 

I am a faculty member at Farmingdale State College in Visual Communications and taught both illustration and design at The University of Delaware and The Delaware College of Art and Design. I have written about Andrew Loomis (Illustration Magazine, Issue Twenty, www.illustration-magazine.com) and co-authored a book with Steven Withrow for Rotovsion: A Master Class in Vector Illustration

With a special interest in graphic storytelling such as children's picture books, comic books and graphic novels, I have nurtured a healthy inner child who still collects comic books and isn't afraid to say so. I hope this child-like joy is apparent in my work as well.

I have a wife (also a designer) and a daughter in Manhattan who works in Fashion and has written children's books of her own that she is patiently waiting for me to illustrate. My son is a talented musician and sometime sculptor who is riding the rock and roll mothership to fame.

When I'm not working, I like to paint robots.
