The above fishing illustration,which I created for the Maritz Motivation Company Book of Awards, is the beginning of my career creating fishing illustrations. Charlie Gardner ,who worked for Mulvey Associates, as a representative that showed my illustrations in New York City, showed this illustration and other pen and ink illustrations I had created for Maritz, to Field and Stream Magazine in 1978 and got me the assignment shown below. I received other illustrations from Field and Stream,and for the past thirty five years other illustrations from most of the major outdoor magazines.

    This reminded me to tell you that I ran across your illustrations for Bass Master magazine while waiting for my car to be serviced a few weeks ago. I knew it was yours before I checked the credit line.

    Having my illustrations printed in magazines has always been a plus for me. Showing a painting in a gallery maybe gets me a hundred views and having an illustration printed in a magazine gets me thousands of views. Thanks for sharing that you saw my illustration in Bass Master.
