Gordon's conceptual style strikes an emotional chord, connecting with the viewer in layered levels of understanding. Humor, drama, joy and the melancholic all make an appearance in his work. His painterly style, fragmented with collage, incorporates distinctly expressive figures into richly colored, spare landscapes. His work has appeared in advertising, magazines and newspapers. His work has been honored by American Illustration, Society of Illustrators (NY), Society of Illustrators (LA), and 3x3 Magazine's Pro Show.
