Roach

I'm Canadian and I teach the fundamentals of drawing and all things digital at The Art Institute of Toronto. My wife Paula is a brilliant astrologer. We have 2 beautiful boys, Jacob 7, and Elijah 20.

I aspire to writing and illustrating picture books for children. I am working on two picture books that will be looking for publishing homes this summer. I dream of having a late bloomer type career, like William Stieg's. The fact that Stieg was able to carry on well into his 90's is pretty appealing. Whenever I entertain doubts regarding my prospects for publication I shout "Tiffky Doofky", the title of a Stieg classic, to ward off evil spirits.

I worked as an editorial illustrator for 28 years and a Flash animator and Creative Director in New Media for 7 years. I acquired Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising Canada as a personal client recently and designed their corporate website. The highlight of my fine art career was exhibiting alongside William Wegman, Andy Warhol and Lucas Samaras in a show at the Canadian Centre of Photography and Film. I've received Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council grants for visual arts and continue to paint and exhibit my work.

Learning from inspired role models has been critical to my growth as an artist and membership in Yellapalooza is a profound motivator and anchor.
