Inspired by the ape scene in 2001 Space Odyssey, this piece addresses Trump's destruction of the mainstream Republican Party (or what's left of it).

My conceptual cover and interior illustrations have appeared in numerous publications including The Village Voice, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Golf Digest, Newsday, Philadelphia Weekly, Barron’s, Oxford American, Business Week, Bloomberg, National Lampoon, Seattle Weekly and Discover Magazine. Also, I've created book illustrations for Reader's Digest Books, Houghton Mifflin, St. Martin's Press, Harcourt Brace and “Emily and the Ostriches” (Rizzoli Publ.), a children's book collaboration with Dan Bernstein. In 2015, six of my paintings were published in “50 Masters of Realistic Imagery”. For the last 18 years, I've been concentrating on painting larger canvases and exploring deadline/art director-free conceptual approaches. Socio-political commentary ... shaken, not stirred.
