Bio: “If artistically you are able to do one thing, you are more than likely able to do them all.” Kay Thompson
Ray is – in no particular order – an illustrator, actor, cabaret performer, and graphic designer currently residing in Cleveland, Ohio. Why Cleveland? He has no idea.
His earliest illustrative works include a scene from the opening theme to Bewitched (Crayola marker on typing paper), Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman (pencil on scrap paper), and Laverne’s cursive L (ink pen on baby book). Ray’s work has improved over the years, earning a degree in illustration, and his personal subjects remain close to his heart.
