ABOUT:

Tom holds a BFA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art & Design in Sarasota, Fl. He spent the first decade of his career at Walt Disney Animation Studios. He loathes writing in third person so he’ll keep this short.

 

Tom combines his illustration and animation skills to tell stories from the rat race of life.  Currently, he's working on a new series called 'Reality Slaps' that emerge from the dark shadows of his mind. Some are funny, some are sad - but all are true and come directly from the Muse.
