About the Artist

Thomas Miller

During my 28 year career as a free lance advertising/editorial illustrator my assignments were created in the mediums of pen and ink, dyes, graphite/colored pencils and pastel. My commercial career focused on creating illustrations for advertising agencies, design firms, periodical publishers, and corporations.

Since 2000 I have had to refocus my vision and career direction. Advances technology made for great changes in the advertising illustration market. My present focus is the result of those changes.
