And thanks for your interest!
Hi, I'm Ross Anthony, an independent writer/illustrator based in Los Angeles. I've worked in 32 countries across 4 continents. One year, I backpacked around the globe. Columbus was right, you can get to the East by going West. Since I did it alone, that makes me a Solo World Circumnavigator. Pretty cool, huh? As sketchbooks and journals began to weigh down my backpack, my artistic abilities expanded, and the world opened my tiny little mind. What a year! What else? Let's see. Oh yeah, I volunteered in Africa for a year. I even wrestled a lion. No kidding - raised in captivity, but still a lion! Also very cool, I annually head-up chili4homeless. How about you? In what small resonating ways are you helping out this pretty blue planet and those who call it home? Still reading? See! Your A.D.D. isn't as bad as you thought! Speaking of reading, as a passionate writer, I'm so fortunate to have thousands of readers. Might you be the next one? Click over to my books page and read their reviews of my (3) novels, (2) non-fiction philosophical travelogues, YA trilogy, and children's book in 8 languages. Or if you're a film buff (like me) take a gander at my movie review site. I've screened and reviewed over 1000 films, and interviewed celebs from Julia Roberts to Harrison Ford. It's always a pleasure to turn people on to great films. What else? I have a master's in education, coach other writers, and interestingly enough, teach speed reading. (Check out my RAword Wordshops.)
Let's create brilliant art together. I'd be honored to make your illustration or literary project a reality. I shoot for the heart with my paintings and prose. I can edit, rewrite, coach, layout/format, illustrate (by hand & digitally), cartoon, oil paint, design logos, and even deliver your project in a print-ready file. Contact me and let's get started!
Life's a brief little miracle!
Sincerely, Ross Anthony
