Huntington, NY, USA
Inspired by album covers and punk rock flyers as a kid—along with the romantic notion of making a living as an artist—Norm lives his dreams on a daily basis as Napoleon’s Art Studio Technical Director, ensuring the studio’s smooth operation, managing in-house and freelance artists, serving as project manager, quality controller and liaison with art directors and creative directors and acting as the studio’s lead production artist. The former Marine attended the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts, holds a BFA in Illustration and professes an avid interest in low-brow art, graphic novels, tattoos, hot rods, motorcycling and “all things that are old.”
