With over 25 years experience Doug combines the traditional techniques of watercolor and colored pencil with Photoshop to give production ready images that have a more hand-done look to them than typical slick digital illustrations. He specializes in painting realistic food, fruit and botanical illustrations used for packaging and advertising.
Doug is fortunate to have many happy, recurring clients, and has done more than 70 packaging illustrations for St. Ive’s products and over 50 packaging illustrations for Suave Naturals and Seasonals products. Frito-Lay has used his illustrations on their packaging for Ruffle’s Potato Chips, Rold Gold Pretzels, Tostitos Salsa, Grandma’s Cookies, Chester’s Fries and Doritos Toppers. Additional clients include Alberto VO5, Ambria Candles, Bath & Body Works, Best Foods, Clairol, Clorox, Continental Mills, Crystal Geyser Waters, Dial, E & J Gallo, Ghirardelli, Good Seasonings, In-the-Raw, La Yogurt, Mahatma/Carolina Rice, Marzetti, Red Lobster, Seneca, Shaklee, Tree Top, WalMart and Victoria’s Secret.
