illustrations by tom mcCain

Art in hand


Born with pencil in hand, tom lives life as a cartoonist and illustrator. Although his career in the graphic design field began during the dark ages of paper, pencil and pen, he has long since made the transition into a digital world while maintaining his sense of wit and whimsy, and a multi-dimensional view of possibilities.

Much of tom’s art in the illustration portfolio has been produced for business-to-business purposes, whether marketing, the environment, or a dozen other areas. Regardless of the topic, his consistent challenge has been to find an artistic point-of-view that illuminates and enhances the message. He revels in that.

Cultural values

Volunteer service has been an important part of tom’s life and that personal passion continues. He provides web site, email marketing and social media services for the Friends of Broad Ripple Park and Friends of the White River, and serves on executive boards for both. He also volunteers for the Broad Ripple Farmers Market and as a naturalist leading school groups on nature hikes at Holliday Park in Indianapolis.

When not otherwise busy with work or volunteering, you’ll likely find tom on his bicycle. He and his wife, Mindy, live on the banks of White River.
