About Artist:

Artist's statement: Regardless of the medium, I believe it is only art which speaks truth that holds a lasting resonance with the viewer. Therefore, I do demand anatomical accuracy from my work. However, since art is an interpretation, I also believe that my work is enhanced by incorporating a judicious degree of exaggeration. These are my goals.

"...Todd. A fellow traveler in the world of wonders." -Walter Matia

Polymath Artist: I am a featured and award winning sculptor, illustrator, and a former exclusively black & white newspaper comic strip cartoonist.

"Ostinato Rigore" (relentless rigore) -Leonardo da Vinci 

I received my formal art training at Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland. There I studied a myriad disciplines to include: cartooning, illustration, drawing (all levels), advertising art, design, and sculpture. In addition, I studied human anatomy, physiology and kinesiology for 18 months which has benefited me enormously in giving life to my work.

Following art school, I served an extended seven year apprenticeship under master wildlife sculptor Bart Walter. I also studied under master sculptor Walter Matia for over one yearand briefly under artist Phillip Ratner. 

As a result of my years of formal training, professional understudy and consistent practice, I have come to understand that creating fine art is fundamentally about developing the ability to see your subject--any subject--with uncommon clarity. You will not be capable of imbuing your art with a true sense of life until you have learned to see in this way.

And to do so, you must consciously be thinking about: shapes, distances (i.e. positive and negative space), mass, movement and symmetry as you sculpt or draw. It's an ongoing exercise in problem identification and problem solving.

In addition to my personal mentors, the artists that I've been most influenced by are: Jacob Epstein, Alexander Pope, Felix de Weldon, Henry Moore, August Rodin, Alberto Giacometti, Bill Watterson, Gary Larson, Jim Unger, Wiley Miller, John Callahan, Bill Mauldin and Berkley Breathed.

 

 

About Artwork:

This drawing is image #3 of my "Kenya Safari 2005" series inspired by my safari in Kenya.

*Interesting Facts:

Elephants eat a wide range of plant material, including grass, leaves, woody parts of trees and shrubs and flowers and fruits (when available). After rain, they will dig for roots. Asian elephants feed on more than 100 species of plant, and both African and Asian elephants take crops such as millet. An adult needs to eat up to 150kg of food a day – that’s 50 tonnes a year.
