art blog and portfolio


I received my training at the School of Visual Arts where I earned both a Bachelors Degree in Illustration and a Masters Degree in Applied Teaching.

After graduation I was fortunate to work in illustration, animation and comic books. I have worked on freelance illustration projects, animated shows for the Disney Channel and as an in-house artist for D.C. Comics.

I left the commercial art field to pursue a greater love, teaching. Today I work as a High School Visual Arts Teacher, an Art History College Lecturer and draw and paint everyday for myself.

I have shown my work in a variety of shows from New York to England. My work is rooted in the ideals of classical realism and a deep love of nature.

I paint in primarily watercolor and gouache; preferring to work directly from life.

I proudly live Queens, New York with my wife and two children.

  1. Thanks for liking my facial expressions doodle! I’m hoping to get into one of the big publishers in comics someday. Until then, I’m working in some indie stuff. Any advice?

  2. Dear Doug,

    I’ m a member of the Salmagundi Club, went over to see the Non-Members’ Exhibition, and just bought your “One Koi.” Now I happen to collect small human portraits, but never thought I’d be buying one of a fish! Somehow, though, the colors of the koi, the rocks in the water, and the frame are so perfectly right together that I could not resist. Thus, you are the first artist in the show to sell your painting.

    Should you want to hear these compliments over the phone, my number is xxx-xxx-xxxx.

    Cordially, Laura Smith

      Hi Laura,
      Thank you so much for both the kind words and for buying the painting! I am really glad that you like it, it was a real joy to paint and I was really pleased with the result.
      I will be at the opening reception tomorrow, if you are there please say hi.
      Thanks again
