Introduction Copyright Turtel Onli 2017 and other registered dates per all original images posted here. Please do not reproduce for commercial or professional use without written permission from Turtel Onli: "Now that my teaching & coaching career in the Chicago Public Schools is over with 10 plus years as a professor of Art Appreciation & Drawing at Harold Washington College, my independent creative practices are my focus. We contributed to the Green movement. ONLI STUDIOS has produced 20 indie comic-cons in Chicago, while I worked as an producer, illustrator, & educator. I graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Art Ed & Art Therapy plus I worked and lived in Paris France. In addition to working on album covers for George Clinton / P-Funk & Captain Sky. I created an album cover for the Rolling Stones under the direction of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Plus I worked in the French Bande Dessinee field at that time. My client history included Holt, Rinehart & Winston, WGN, Singer Society for Visual Education,Mode Avant Garde and the Paris Metro Magazine. Now to promote independent creativity in the visual arts ."
Interests I want to attract investors & collectors to grow my practices into a dynamic profitable influence in the visual arts. This would be so powerful for the industry as a whole. We are talking about expanding markets, indie oriented recreational reading materials, commerce, jobs, creative expression, and intelligent contemporary mythology.
Favorite Movies Inferno, The Empire Strikes Back, Ninja Scrolls, Allegro Non Troppo, Putney Swope, Swordfish, and Starship Troppers.
Favorite Music Albums: Are You Experienced, Stand, A Love Supreme. Operating on a Blown Mind and all excellent innovators. Not the wannabes!
Favorite Books The Bible, all of the Jack Kirby books, the Milestone books, The Onli Studios titles and early Metal Hurlant magazine stories.

When you hesitate before hitting snooze on your alarm clock, are you being lazy?

I like to wake up in the morning as early as possible. To me sleeping is like being a little bit dead.
