Joe has been drawing for as long as he can remember, probably since the age of four.
He was born and raised on Staten Island, just a short ferry ride to Manhattan where he attended The High School of Art and Design and college at Parsons where he earned a BFA degree. Over his 30 plus year career he has worked for most major magazines and newspapers as well as for corporate and advertising clients, book publishers and record companies.
Some clients include: American Express, The Atlantic Monthly, Capitol Records, ESPN, Esquire, Jazziz, The New Yorker, New York Times, Playboy, Rolling Stone, Sports Illustrated, Time and US News and World Report. Among his awards are three Silver Medals from the Society of Illustrators. His work has been featured in Communication Arts Magazine as well as other graphic arts journals and he is included in “Who’s Who in American Art.” In 1999 Joe had a one-man exhibition of his work at the Society of Illustrators in New York. Some of his work appears in the companion book to the PBS series “The Blues” produced by Martin Scorsese, as well as in “Illustration Now!” published by Taschen.
