Welcome to Dry's Pond Illustration, where the images start with pencil on paper and then pass through the digital realm. Browse through my portfolio list below and see how I've helped clients achieve their marketing and editorial goals. Get a glimpse at what crawls through my head occasionally under Personal.

I've worked in the creative industry for over ten years in a variety of roles. As an illustrator I've done work for The Izaak Walton League, Nature's Delight, Corona and Modelo Beers, Countrywide Home Loans (remember them?) and a few others. My illustration style combines the sincerity of hand-drawing with the vibrancy of digital color application. For my day job, I'm the web designer and administrator for campbell.edu. For my night job, I draw and code for clients and my own musings.
The Pond is an oval, it's about an acre in size and was dug out more than fifty years ago by my grandfather with help from friends and family. Its primary purpose was to irrigate the crops he grew, mostly tobacco. Today it's a great place for fishing and shooting the breeze. My grandfather, Cloniger Young was a thin man and very buoyant. My folks tell me he could float on his back all afternoon, reading the Sunday paper.
