...with calm, grace & exceeded my expectations!
“Michael created for me amazing holiday business cards to send to my clients to keep me top of mind. I was admittedly hard to please, asking for numerous changes, but he did all of them with calm, grace & exceeded my expectations! I would not hesitate to hire him again for his incredible services.”
Dan Newmark, Presentation Specialist

He is an artist enamored of the Goddess
“Although his use of grisaille in dramatically cropped compositions could signal a stylistic kinship with David Salle, Apice’s approach to womanly curves is romantic rather than pornographic; he is an artist enamored of the Goddess rather than the bimbo!”
Ed McCormack, Gallery & Studio Magazine
Michael's style exhibits extreme sensitivity
"Michael's style exhibits extreme sensitivity... high emotion between his subjects and viewers. While his painting technique may wow audiences, he keeps the viewers attention by evoking an experience.”
Alli Rufrano, International Photographer & Professor
From Wikipedia: Commercial Art
Commercial art is the art of creative services, referring to art created for commercial purposes, primarily advertising.
Commercial art uses a variety of platforms (magazines, websites, apps, television, etc.) for viewers with the intent of promoting sale and interest of products, services, and ideas. It relies on the iconic image (pictorial representations that are recognized easily to members of a culture) to enhance recall and favorable recognition for a product or service.
An example of a product could be a magazine ad promoting a new soda through complimentary colors, a catchy message, and appealing illustrative features.
