    Society of Illustrators LA, selected artist


I'm an award winning illustrator who lives and works in beautiful Charleston, SC. My career began 15 years ago when I illustrated my first children's book, No Pets Allowed.  At the time I just finished my freshman year in college, and started working for my university's press as a student illustrator.  I fell in love with being an illustrator and an art form where I could make words and stories come to life through my pictures.

Since then I have worked with some really cool places like Nike, Marvel, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and also for big-name publishers like McGraw-Hill, MacMillan  and Houghton Mifflin.  I've illustrated and created children's books for Caribou Coffee and Savannah College of Art and Design, and most recently I illustrated my first ebook story for the FarFaria app featured on the iPad.

In 2011, I was awarded the Gold Medal of excellence from PLAY! Illustration International Competition, and in 2012, my work was selected to be part of the Illustration West 50 by the Society of Illustrator's Los Angeles.  My work has also been honorably mentioned in both 3x3's Creative Quarterly and CMYK magazine.

I'm a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, and serve on the Board of Illustration for SCBWI's Carolinas Chapter. I've shown my illustrations as Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles, Savannah Gallery in Atlanta, and the Moot Gallery in Hong Kong. I hold an MFA in illustration from Savannah College of Art and design, and I teach part time at the Art Institue of Charleston.

And that's just my day job! I'm a proud dad and husband, and I never share a dull moment with my wife and co-illustrator Erin Bennett Banks, our perfect, baby daughter, and two mischievious pugs.
