NESTLE CRUNCH

Nestle CrunchMy painting of a Nestle Crunch Bar became my first promotional piece as an illustrator. It was printed on a postcard, which I handed out to art directors at agencies all over Los Angeles. I hand painted the lettering, but later in my career I learned methods to create more perfect lettering by using rubdown type. As an artist, I enjoyed rendering textures and discovering the many shades of brown in chocolate. This painting was created with watercolor dyes, before there was Photoshop. Some close-ups are below.Nestle Crunch close up Nestle Crunch close up 3 Nestle Crunch close up 2

SNICKER’S BAR

Snickers

One of my favorite paintings from my career as an illustrator was of a Snicker’s Bar. I admit that I nibbled on my samples after photographing them.

I had my painting printed on thousands of postcards, which I mailed all over the country. It was an excellent promotional piece because Art Directors always told me that it made them hungry.                    

My painting was created with watercolor dyes, before there was Photoshop. Some close-ups are below.

COCA COLA CLASSIC

I am excited to share another painting on 20 lines, which I’ve named Coca Cola Classic. Painting ice and soda was very abstract and interesting for me.

This painting was created with watercolor dyes, before there was Photoshop. Some close-ups are below.

PERFUME MEDLEY

It has been my pleasure to share my song lyrics and poetry on 20 Lines. 

All of my life, I have been an artist. For over thirty years, I was commercial illustrator. I am excited to share some of my paintings on 20 lines. I have a blog where I describe my technique and have a lot more information. It is at:

The painting above was created with watercolor dyes, before there was Photoshop. I photographed those bottles before painting them and my reflection while holding a camera can be seen below:
