Artist's Statement

I'm an illustrator. I'm sent a piece of fiction from an editor at a publishing house and directed to supplement the writing with an appropriate drawing. This is how I make my living.

These characters and scenarios do not spring from the well of my own personal fantasies, they are the by-product of the job that I perform in the adult magazine industry. I create these colorful representations as an income generating necessity.

I don't judge people. It's not my job. But illustrating porn is my job and I take pride in the fact that none of my randy little creations is debased, demeaned or derided for being different. They're horny, happy and human. I see each scene through each of the character's eyes, and everybody always sees what they like.
