Stan watts began illustrating in 1973 while apprenticing under Don Ivan Punchatz in Arlington, Texas, while still being a student at the University of Oklahoma.

After relocating from Oklahoma to Los Angeles in 1976, he  began his freelance career and was represented by Paul Cormany, (Los Angeles), American Artists, (New York), Jim Lily, (San Francisco), Ceci Bartels, (St Louis), and Joel Harlib (Chicago).

He successfully developed a style that bridged photography and illustration, resulting in many iconic images that spanned over two decades from the 80’s through the 90’s. His work received international recognition, including two Grammy Nominations, numerous Key Art Awards, and many entries in illustration annuals, both national and internationally. 

One of his earliest pieces toured the world and was featured in a book titled, “Two Hundred Years of American Illustration.”

His clients included Sony, MCA, Universal, CBS Records, MGM, Disney, Paper Moon, AGI, New York West, Playboy, Oui, Warner Brothers, National Lampoon, The NFL, Sea World, Magic Mountains, Capitol Records, just to mention a few.

He continued illustrating until 2011. He is currently living in Austin, TX and pursuing other interests.
