It's time I posted about someone whom I have known all of his life....and that is my brother, author, and children's book illustrator, Troy Howell. Troy is a modest man, handsome...he really wanted to be an actor...but life chose him to be an artist. So, he pursed his career at the young age of 17, when he became an illustrator for the magazine 'Cricket' for children. From there on, he moved from Southern California where he was born and raised, and he moved to Virginia to be on the eastern seaboard to be closer to New York City where he was able to find an agent to promote his artist career.
Without much further ado he can be found at his site: www.troyhowellstudio.com
I am adding a photo of one of his pieces of artwork which is available in his 'trunk sale' and a contrasting photograph of a tree in Africa, which I thought looked like a woman. Please enjoy Troy's website.
