What is a Graphic Artist?
Graphic artists creates visual concepts, by hand or using computer software, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, or captivate consumers. They help to make an organization recognizable by selecting color, images, or logo designs that represent a particular identity or idea to be used in promotions and advertising.
My design experience includes print graphics, packaging, apparel and accessory graphics, painting and video. Check out some samples of my work, and feel free to contact me if you are interested.
Antony Capers (born June 1) is a graphic designer, best known for his Kids Fantasy Art style photography and his unique use of glitter on his paintings.
I have been doing graphic design professionally since graduating from Tampa Technical Institute in Tampa, FL with a Associates in Applied Science and a minor in Video Production in 1996. Bouncing from creative positions from company to company like (Kinko's, Alpha Graphics, BSA Advertising), I Started as a Graphics Designer at Digiquest Technologies in 2000, I worked my way up to Art Director of the graphics department by my first year of employment. I stayed with the company for 10 years and still freelance for them to this day.
I was employed full-time as a Marvel Comic book colorist for a couple of years, but I currently work as a freelance graphic designer. Some of my clients include: Wild Wing Cafe, Friends of Joshua House, Blue Moon Beer Co., AdSizzle Marketing, Crunch Time 24hr Fitness, Kids Fantasy Art, Tropicana Field, Bubba The Love Sponge and others.

Friends of Joshua House Project - Tampa, Florida
Joshua House is a safe haven for abused, abandoned, and neglected children, offering a therapeutic residential group care program that provides a protected, nurturing, family-like environment for children six - seventeen. For this project, I hand painted (16) Custom Murals for the children, one in each room of the houses.
Tropicana Field (Rays Stadium) - Tampa, Florida
Home of the Tampa Bay Rays and now home to "Curly's" bar inside the stadium. For this project, I had to hand paint a mural on the back wall of their bar. Keeping the theme of St. Pete, I painted the "Skyway Bridge". One of the longest and tallest bridges in Florida.
Wild Wing Cafe Signature Store - Franklin, Tennessee
These restaurants have some of the best food and won tons of awards. The nice thing about this project, is that I was there from the beginning. I had to paint on location multiple murals in this brand new flagship restaurant in Tennessee.
Blue Moon Beer Company - Denver, Colorado
This is another special project for me, because it is ongoing and I get to be out in the community teaching people how to paint. For Blue Moon Beer Co. I am their Community Muralist and I get to paint live with the customers at there events all while the patrons sample their new beer products.
I use only the latest in Digital Products and Software
A designer is only as strong as his tools. With technology rapidly changing, it is paramount to stay up to speed with the latest design software.
It would be cool to be handed something like a Kids Fantasy Art photo instead of a regular school photography portrait. See the full interview...Regina Hunter, Attorney at Law
