to me, tom dickson


I was a creative

kid but didn’t think

to pursue it and,

upon graduating

from high school,

followed the path of

least resistance from

mail clerking at an

ad agency to managing

the HR Department of

a mid-sized investment

dealer, where, after eight years, I decided to take

a run at doing as I

pleased. Early on, this

was writing, later,

illustrating. I still do

both, though am acknowledged most

for my illustrations,

reproductions of which

have appeared in

Canadian and U.S.

publications, been

chosen for Apple iCards,

and are hung for fun

on walls around the

world. Two have been featured on Fine

Art America's home

page, most recently
