His work has also appeared in film slides and filmstrips for a studio in New York City serving the advertising needs of Coca-Cola, Goodrich Tires, and IBM. From 1979 through 1995, Tony was a staff illustrator for the Art Department of Newsday doing cartoon and illustration work. He was recognized for his artistic achievements when he received the first Publishers Award in Graphic Arts from Newsday.
