What art directors are saying...

Anthony is an excellent illustrator who quickly understand and interprets creative briefs. As an art director of a couple of different magazine titles I have contracted Anthony several times and he has always delivered stunning illustrations that perfectly complemented our editorial and conveyed the ideas in the text. One of his illustrations we used in the magazine was selected to be in American Illustration Annual 26 and Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles Illustration 43.-Lisa Pampillonia, Art Director, BP Oil Angola Magazine

Anthony has been an outstanding illustrator for us over the years, taking on difficult concepts like government contracting and presidential transition, to name a few. Anthony has come up with great solutions to all topics and has completed work on time and on budget without fail. He is one of the first illustrators I think of for any project we have, and he's been a pleasure to work with." -Kelly Martin, Art Director, Government Executive Magazine

"Anthony is highly a creative illustrator who I have hired to execute complicated subject matters for magazine layouts. His ideas are original, sharp and always targeted to the concept.
