Russo studied at the Parsons School of Design and The School of Visual Arts in New York City. Numerous industry publications in the United States and abroad have featured articles on his work, including: Print (twice), Idea (Japan), Studio (Israel), Art Direction, and Upper & Lower Case.

Russo is recognized as one of the world’s premier interactive artists. In 1990 he signed the largest book deal for a first time author in Simon & Schuster’s history. His intricate maze designs, original alphabet lettering, and high detailed scenes have toured museums for years, been featured on QVC, and licensed throughout the world resulting in 75 different product designs.  His ad for Absolut Vodka, “Absolut Amazement”, was an 8 page foldout poster that challenged readers to participate and complete the maze. MAD hired Russo to create a cover portrait of Alfred E. Neuman for its 1993 Collector’s Edition. His most recent ad campaign (2007) was for Sony’s Playstation 2, featuring three full pages of his unique mazes

In 1996, Russo enhanced his career and began creating television/movie properties in Hollywood. To date he has sold a dozen television properties, three of which were reality shows that have already aired: “Combat Missions”/USA Network (2002)/Mark Burnett Productions, Magic Johnson’s “Who’s Got Game?”/MTV (2003) and “Hey Paula”/BRAVO (2007). Russo is credited with discovering Donald Trump for television via his unaired NBC show “The Billionaire.”

At present Russo continues to create original television and movie properties. His maze artwork
is touring the country via Minotaur Mazes and his latest works are currently being featured through 2011 at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. David Goldman Agency has recently re-started to license the vast collection of Russo’s book art for the first time since 1996. New Russo maze books and products will be back on the market in 2011, along with the launch of new TV properties. David's published books The Great Treasure Hunt, Around the World: The Great Treasure Hunt, Go for It!: Races, Rescues, Treasure Hunts and More, The Ultimate Maze Book can be found on

Russo has been training in the martial arts since 1977. Russo Sensei holds a fourth-degree black belt in Jujitsu, and has studied Tae Kwon Do, Hopkido, Aikido, Go Ju Ryu, Chigong, wrestling, grappling, and Judo. He is also proficient with the Houbo(short staff) and the cane. Along with the Jujitsu curriculum, Russo also teaches police tactics, including handcuffing techniques, non-violent restraint, and takedowns. His dojo, Goshin Tsugiashi Do Jujitsu Intoku, is located on Maui. Russo Sensei has been teaching women how to stay safe from harm since 1990. He instructs them in techniques for rape prevention, for various physical defenses against an attack, to know their environment through awareness, not fear, and to use easy-to-learn Judo and Jujitsu moves.

Inspirations at Art Licensing

Jun 23, 2009

In times of uncertainty and worry, people look to inspiration to lift their spirits.  So in this unstable economic time, inspirational art has really grown and become a staple in most art offerings.  Walk into any retail store’s decor section and you’ll see dozens of images that display some kind of inspirational message.

These are the kinds of images many people are choosing to decorate their homes with.  It’s like the equivalent of a nice hot bowl of soup on a cold, damp winter day; it’s a positive message packaged in an attractive way to hang on your wall to see each day as you head out into an uncertain world.  These messages vary from ideas of love and friendship, to motivational phrases, to environmental notions, and even to political views.

Each of these ideas is embedded into a decorative style and trendy colors.  The style and color allows the message to translate from merely a phrase, to an attractive, inspirational piece of artwork.
