While pursuing his Master of Fine Arts degree, Gil Ashby started creating illustrations professionally. His first job was an album cover for Arista Records. In the same year, he received his first certificate of merit from the Society of Illustrators, New York. Since then, his assignments have included editorial, children's books, graphic novels, murals and courtroom drawing. Ashby developed his passion for teaching while coordinating a portfolio preparation program at a non-profit arts program in Harlem.
Drawing serves as the vehicle that feeds Ashby's soul and provides his spirit a window to transcend the walls that exist between the inner mind and actualization.
