The Artist


Born in New Orleans in 1964 and later raised in Kenner, Louisiana, Anthony “Tony” Birkel, developed a love of drawing at an early age, with his talent becoming influenced by both animation and illustration.

By his teens, realizing his true natural ability, he started to draw in much greater detail. With a love for reading and an inquisitive nature, he began familiarizing himself with the works and techniques of such artists as Burne Hogarth, Frank Frazetta, Bob Kuhn, and Robert Bateman, just to name a few. It was his appreciation for detail and flexibility which spilled over into his work with 3-dimensional scale models. Considering the two as “hobbies”, Tony began to pursue a career in sales, and later in management. 

Injuries sustained in an auto accident in 1998 left him unable to continue his career. Subsequently, drawing and working with model projects became a greater part of his life as a way to cope with his disabilities. 

Working with mediums as varied as his subject matter, his art is diverse, from fantasy art to realistic renderings of animals, cars and people. Most of his work has been privately collected with some public showings.

While volunteering with his daughter’s art class, Tony found himself with a renewed desire to create. It was that “fire” that led to his most recent creation, ‘Big Cat in the Big Easy’, and “Fusion. 

Tony resides with his wife and daughter in Kenner, Louisiana.
