Richard Golueke

Richard is a native Californian and a lifetime Bay Area resident.  His educational background was as a political science major at the University of California, Berkeley.

"Shortly thereafter, I became interested in architecture and design.  I was inspired by illustration and decided to make it my career."

He spent several years apprenticing in a small San Francisco graphic design studio and has been a freelance San Francisco based illustrator since 1980.
