Anthony M. Grimaldi - Designer

New York, NY, United States

Illustrator & Graphic Designer who blends illustration and digital art to create with unlimited creativity and visual imagination.

Overview

My technique of combining and blending illustration and graphic design allow virtually no limits for interpreting whatever my imagination is inspired to create, enabling me to design with unlimited creativity and visual imagination. With this technique, I offer greater flexibility, variety, and choices that assure maximum artistic achievement in every design for every client. Though each medium has its own tools and character, the true artist not only masters each one individually, but combines and blends each together to achieve the ultimate artistic vision. As an illustrator & graphic designer, this artistic vision is my constant thought and primary goal.
