Here are some of my paintings on wood panel featuring Nimbus, the character from my graphic novels and comics. The paintings are about 14" x 20", and are based on my Travels of Nimbus series that I've been working on for several years. I love working on these paintings. They take about 6-8 weeks to complete and require a more relaxed way of working that is a nice complement to editorial assignments with quick deadlines. I'm preparing for 2 exhibits in the next year and am in a groove to complete several more of these soon.
Nimbus (the character from my graphic novels and comics) makes a rare appearance in his bathing attire at the 14th Street YMCA in one of two illustrations that appeared in the metropolitan section of The New York Times this past weekend.
I've been revisiting some of my favorite Nimbus images and turning them into oil paintings. Several are currently on exhibit in New Haven CT. It's the first time that I've exhibited these paintings and I'm getting a nice response from them.

Next up on my easel is Nimbus and the Amsterdam Concert. This image was in the Society of Illustrators 58th Annual Exhibition this past January, and has just been accepted into American Illustration 35.
Here are some panels from my new story featuring Nimbus, the character from my graphic novels and comics. In this story, Nimbus tries to uncover the source of a mysterious blight afflicting Italy's olive trees. Will he succeed? The story takes place in Italy and Jerusalem.
