Paul Bonanno

Illustrator/Sketch Artist



Professional illustrator creating high quality commercial illustration for over 15 years.
Working full time freelance for the last ten years mainly drawing storyboards and comps
for many of the finest Advertising Agencies in New York and around the country.
During this period I also worked on comic books, character design, video jackets
and many other types of illustration. Prior to that I worked as staff illustrator
for TBWA/CHIAT DAY for 5 years.


Among the many advertising agencies I’ve worked with are:

• Young & Rubican

• Wonderman Cato Johnson

• Saachi & Saachi

• Mesner, Vetere, Berger, MacNamee, Schmetterer

• Grey Advertising

• McCann Erickson

Some of the many accounts I’ve worked on are:

• Coca Cola • USA Network

• Nike • Michelob

• Burger King • Wendys • Lays Potato Chips

• Dunkin Donuts • Hillshire Farms

• Walt Disney Studios • The Discovery channel • Pizza Hut

• Sears • Birds Eye

I’ve covered a wide variety of subjects and have always delivered my jobs on time.

Knowing the time constraints of this business I have developed a quick drawing style,
and I’m well aware that my job is not only to draw well, but to capture the ideas of the art director
and to illustrate them in the best and clearest way to the client. My experience and knowledge
allows the art directors to focus more on their ideas and not to worry about the illustration of the storyboard.

Some typical comments I get from clients.
