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) ads to the historic authenticity of every illustration that he creates. His love for Science Fiction and Horror are also big interests and he is slowly adding new pieces of these genres into the Anthony Parisi Collection. Anthony also enjoys photography & BBQ competition.
Anthony has written and illustrated a graphic novel named "OUT OF TUNE". It's about an 80s garage band named Legion and my or may not be semi autobiographical. The book comes with an audio CD so you can listen to Legion while you are reading the book. Anthony wrote all of the songs and is singing and playing all of the instruments.
You can check out OUT OF TUNE HERE.
Anthony has also created the original "Classic Rock Tarot Cards®" which contain 78 original illustrations of classic rock icons!

Aside from illustrating, Anthony also enjoys writing and recording original music in his home recording studio and performing live with his band, ANTHONY & THE SIDECARS. When not creating Beatle illustrations or creating 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.
