Thank you for visiting my gallery. As you can see, I'm kind of all over the board with what I do in my artwork. While I strive for versatility, the thing I enjoy most is portraits and anything involving the human form, especially if I can incorporate a retro vibe. To me, capturing a likeness is the biggest challenge because, unlike other subjects, it doesn't allow for any shortcuts; it either looks like the person or it doesn't. Seeing that face come to life on that paper brings the sort of personal satisfaction that only another artist can truly understand. At the same time it inspires me to keep refinining my technique and try other things that will add a touch of enhancement to the final result. Regardless of the media I'm working in, I approach and handle every project as though it's a drawing. This has helped me maintain a certain level of consistency and a more sure hand. Lots of times I go for total realism in order to sharpen my eye, but I've always admired artists whose work combines both tight and loose aspects within the same piece. I try to do that in subtle ways when doing certain portraits. For instance, while the facial features can give off an almost photographic sense of realism, the hair gets stylized, or a part of the body fades out in a sketch-like fashion. Just little embellishments that tell you you're looking at something that was done by a human hand and not by a camera.

Anyway, that's my kick. You can browse through my stuff and see if I practice what I preach.

I truly appreciate your interest and hope you enjoy your stay!

I am a professional freelance artist/illustrator/instructor capable of working in a variety of media. A graduate of Chicago's American Academy of Art, I hold an Associate's Degree in Graphic Art and Design. I have worked for a variety of clients including Scott Foresman, Knowles China, Coldwell Banker, and Everyday Learning. I also do commissioned portraits and teach drawing classes in the Chicagoland area. Although I can handle virtually any subject matter with equal skill, my foremost specialty is portraiture and the human form.

The one on Indian Bob Johnson almost got me in trouble with you Tony
His Grand Daughter, My Daughter from his Son the RJ the III .
( message me for any more info ) lol

Is also is a Deviant Artist and you signed an original for her and Pat and Terry sent us it and a copy of their book, on November 9th, 2005.

My Daughter saw the Casey62 and told me to report Art Theft as it was posted under the Casey name not the artists name .

Luckily I looked through your art and realized you were the Actual Artist and have due Credit .
Thank you for doing such a great photo of her Grandfather . She looks so much like him . :)

And she is very Protective of Artists Rights . And Protective of her Grandfather and the Baseball Legacy.

Sorry for not getting back sooner:

It's great hearing from you! Casey62 is only my username on deviantart. Pat is a good friend of mine and he commissioned me to do the painting of Indian Bob for his book. I loved doing it, and am so glad you and your daughter approve of my work. Thank you so much for contacting me. All my best to you,

Sincerely,

Tony Crnkovich
