The bodybuilding bug bit Steve after he watched the movie "Pumping Iron" as an impressionable fifth grader back in 1976. Coupled with the debut of "The Incredible Hulk" TV show a few years later, it sparked a desire in Steve to study and draw human anatomy -- although at the time it was mostly 'pea green' anatomy.

Steve managed to build up both his own muscles and his portfolio with a few muscular paintings. The sample work on this page includes spot illustrations, posters and portfolio pieces that were used in conjunction with various muscle magazines like, Weider Publications, Flex Magazine and MuscleMag International.

Steve still enjoys the occasional workout but even more than that, enjoys creating art with a muscular twist--:P
