Born and raised in New Rochelle, NY, Anthony is a graduate of Parsons School of Design where he received his BFA in Illustration. Anthony likes to think of himself as a “face specialist,” but also has a knack for stylizing the human form to give one-dimensional figures the illusion of fluidity and motion.
Anthony’s love of illustration, music, history, and historic musical instruments (he is a self-proclaimed guitar junkie) adds to the historic authenticity of every illustration that he creates. His love for Science Fiction and Horror is slowly influencing the addition of new pieces into the Parisi Collection. Anthony also enjoys photography & BBQ competition.
His past 25 years as an Art Director and keen sense of humor give Anthony an added advantage to being a conceptual illustrator. As a Clio-nominated Art and Photography Director, Parisi has created numerous logos, websites, identity pieces, direct mail, packaging, print ads, and radio & television commercials for countless clients in a variety of industries.
He has illustrated several children’s books and has written and illustrated his own graphic novel, “Out of Tune,” which comes with an original music CD of 80s metal compositions. Anthony has also created his own Classic Rock Tarot Cards, which feature 78 full-color illustrations.
Aside from illustrating, Anthony also enjoys writing and recording original music in his home recording studio, and performing live. When not creating Beatle illustrations or making music, Anthony can be found drawing caricatures of poor unsuspecting passers-by while out with friends. Anthony currently lives in Woodbury, New Jersey with his wife Mary & their daughters Marisa and Melody.
