Released my first Limited Edition Print in 1979 , and went to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh to study comercial art . Started working as a mold maker /sculptor for Ral Partha Enterprises in 1981 and went freelance fulltime in 1984 as a sculptor and illustrator . I attended the Academy of Communicative Arts in Cinicinnati in 1985 to learn traditional cel animation and was hired full time by Post Production Services in 1987 as an animator and computer graphics designer . I left commercial art in 1990 to freelance fulltime once again as a comic book illustrator , which I did until 1999 when I " officially retired " as a professional artist in order to work in the " real world " ( also known as a job that actually paid enough to enable me to PAY BILLS and have a LIFE ! ) Boredom with managing a retail liquor store eventually lead me back to the art world where I began working as a freelance contractor for The Walt Disney Company in 2010 as a theme production artist . In April of 2012 , I was hired full time by the Walt Disney Company in the capacity of a theme production artist in a perepheral workshop of Walt Disney World's Central Shops .
