About Joseph:

I often switch around in both mediums and various artistic styles in my art and have shown my work at times under the name of Joseph. In this work, I revert back to a earlier linear, more illustrative style of working. In 2008, I finally began writing and illustrating an Early Reader children's story that I had promised my daughter Tasha when she was a little girl. Here are a couple of images of the soon to be published story, titled The Amazing Mr. Duke,Diego's Circus

Below: In the winter of 2011, I did a series of soft pastel on paper self portraits in my winter toboggan hat. I work year round in my studio (it is heated but cold when temp gets below 20 degrees) and have worn this hat now for years.

Update: Well 2014 has been a wing dinger, glad still have my trusty toboggan!

 I admire the work of the German Expressionists such as Heckle and Kirchner. Perhaps the extreme cold of mid winter brought out the pained stilized self portraits.
