Freelance Design since 2004!
Hi and thanks for checking out Cafe Retro! We're so glad to have you stop by.
I have worked as a graphic design instructor (and an award winning metal artist) for the last 14 years. In December of 2004 I had an epiphany ......"I wish I was creating art and not following a lesson plan everyday!"...and I've never looked back! That's how a freelance art career was created.
My first design was a series of vintage Italian scooter illustrations which became popular and evolved into over 1000's of designs which have been purchased by customers worldwide (including TV and Movie Studios). I thought WOW, this just might work!! With a lot of patience, perseverance, effort and an incredible amount of time, my freelance career has taken off. Who'd have thought it eh?!?
I have a passion for all things old/vintage/retro which is reflected in the designs I choose to work with. Plenty of old illustrations, vintage posters, advertisement ephemera and old photographs. Recently, I have found great satisfaction creating, restoring and sharing once forgotten works of art for future generations to enjoy.
Please take your time to browse around Cafe Retro and my family of associated shops. You will find an eclectic mix of subjects, some vintage, some contemporary and just a dash of futuristic (I have to feed my sci-fi craving) designs. Thanks again for spending some time here, visit often.
