I've had the privilege of contributing humor and illustration to books published by a variety of publishers, including Penguin-Random House, Pearson/Prentice Hall, Farrar, Straus & Giroux (Macmillan), McGraw-Hill, Wiley & Sons, Harvard Business Review Press, and Pelican Books.
My book illustration and humor work ranges from fiction and children's literature to business books and educational books - including a few best sellers.
While many of my clients have been publishers, and authors who are working with publishers, I also enjoy working with authors who are approaching agents. Others have also taken their books direct to market with self publishing.
Regardless of your path to getting your book into the hands of your readers, I look forward to discussing your ideas.
