The Winick collection is available as signed and numbered limited edition lithographs. A few originals will also be on display. Mule spent his career as a technical artist illustrator specializing in perspective and isometric drawing. His dedication and discipline in technical illustrating have helped him realize that detail is everything. He uses this approach with the oils he paints, which have become his main focus. Retired after 50 years of technical illustrating, Mule is fulfilling a lifetime ambition in oil painting.
