Known for painting toys and american icons for the 1950s and 60s when comic book heroes and robots were en vogue. When I first saw a crayon painting by the artist I wanted to eat it!  I remember once eating a red cherry and then seeing the bright red crayon and expecting the same taste, IT WAS GROSS!  The artist is a photo realist painter but his layering of colours is fantastic. He also has done wonderful paintings of animals that you might see on a merry go round. Now in this fast paced and tech centric world its fun to look back in the days when 10 year olds played outside more than with video games.  The merry go round was plenty of technology for me to enjoy and its fun to think back and reflect when just smelling a freshly opened box of crayons was the most exciting thing in the world.

Also a great painter of doughnuts!

Attended college: Florida International University, Pratt Institute, and New York University.

Try drawing or painting something from your childhood.
