Douglas Smith is a true blue New Yorker who earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. His freelance career blossomed in Boston where he worked for local magazines such as New England Monthly, Boston Magazine, and Boston Globe. Smith’s style is reminiscent of the illustrated woodcuts found in ancient texts. Each piece tells an interesting story which any viewer with a modicum of imagination would have no trouble figuring out. Douglas is also a staunch advocate of Greenpeace. He has drawn numerous projects for them including a famous anti-seal pup hunting T-shirt design. He also illustrated an anti-whaling children’s book. He currently lives off the coast of Maine in a house full of odd stuff, art, and three friendly felines.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
