Photo-Illustration uses Photoshop –perhaps one of the great inventions of the last 20 years. It reaches well beyond the “digital darkroom” to become an artistic and expressive tool in itself.  And fun.
I started taking classes in 1992 and ended up teaching Photoshop and Illustration at The New York Institute of Technology as well as other schools but it was simply a love of photos that brought me to try it and to tell a larger story. Explore the Illustration Gallery pull-down menu above for examples of the work and play of Photo-Illustration.
