Jim Steck's favorite style is what he calls "modern retro." He creates fun, funky illustrations that sport the care-free feelings of decades ago; plus, his vibrant colors and lively backgrounds make his images pop from the page! When telling a story, consistency is of paramount importance to Jim, as witnessed in his illustrations of the 32-page children's picture book, Little Rhino Has No Horn, published by Karen Hunter Media, New Jersey. Jim loves project planning, too. For instance, he writes copy and contributes age-appropriate themes for some of the 100-plus greeting cards he's illustrated. His clients include high-profile companies for which he's created product graphics plus magazines oriented to children, sports enthusiasts, entertainment, non-profit groups, and more. A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Jim's been illustrating and directing art projects for three decades. He's a 3-D thinker, mindful of movement, and skillful with sensory elements.
Jim and his wife, Terri, live with their daughter in Central Florida.
