When I saw my first Corvette…
“In 1965 when I was 11 years old my big brother had a used ‘57 Chevy that he bought from the local Chevrolet dealer in Haddonfield, New Jersey. He had to take the car back for service and asked if I wanted to go for a ride. “Sure!” I said, and he didn’t have to twist my arm. When we got to the dealership, Bob told me to wait for him in the showroom while he went back to the service department. That’s when I saw my first Corvette. A salesman could tell I liked what I saw and gave me a brochure. That was it for me! “
Corvette Report is my Corvette Blog…

How I started drawing cars…
I am often asked, how I got into drawing cars. Well, I was one of those guys in school that was always drawing cars on my book covers and along the margins of my notes. When I graduated from Collingswood High School (in Collingswood, NJ), I thought I wanted to be a draftsman. It didn’t take long for me to realize that my heart belonged to illustration.
I kept drawing drag racing and muscle cars and in 1975 had my first illustration published in “Drag Racing USA” magazine, and have never stopped.
Eventually, in the early ’80s, I went to Philadelphia College of Art and studied illustration. After I put together a portfolio, I began my freelance career. In the early ’90s I had the unique opportunity to work in the “Boys Toys” R& D Department at Tyco Toys where I worked on Tyco RC, Tyco HO, Matchbox, and Matchbox Collectibles product lines. Not only did I have receive a first-rate education in product design and development, I worked with some of the most talented and creative people I have ever known.
No, it wasn’t like the Tom Hanks movie, “BIG,” but I did share many wacky times there. All along though, I kept my hand in the magazine biz and am currently a contributing artist and writer for VETTE Magazine. And I now produce a blog called Corvette Report with all kinds of informative articles, original art and juicy tidbits for the Corvette enthusiast.
I have been offering my art, products and services online for over twelve years. My art is offered on Amazon and I invite you shop securely at Amazon.
