Book Illustration



I've had the good fortune to illustrate books published by Pearson, Penguin-Random House, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, Prentice Hall, Harvard Business Review Press, and John Wiley & Sons, including several bestsellers.


I illustrate a fairly wide range of books, from fiction (including children's and middle grade) to nonfiction and business.


While many of my clients have been authors and publishers, I also enjoy working with authors who are approaching agents. Others have taken their books direct to market with self publishing.


Regardless of your path to getting your book into the hands of your readers, it would by my pleasure to discuss your book and your ideas for illustration.

People have long known it is important to have clear priorities and then focus on them. But no one ever tells you how to do it. But that’s exactly what Harry Max does in Managing Priorities, where he clearly lays out the steps that anyone can use to be more productive and effective. It’s required reading for anyone wanting to be a better business leader.”
