If you wander around the best people watching places in Cleveland, you will most likely run into Ralph Solonitz. Ralph can often be found sitting at a table, in a coffee house, or on a park bench, drawing the interesting local scenes and diverse people he sees.
Ralph has had a long career as an artist, in graphic design and illustration...and is presently still designing and loving illustration.
Ralph Solonitz was born in 1947 in Munich, Germany, the son of Holocaust survivors. Ralph says, " I began doodling very early on...first in German and a few years later in my new language, English. My father gave me motivational advice..."stop your doodling, you are vasting time and vill amount to nutting". Fast forward 55 years, thousands of dollars in therapy and I still can't stop doodling."
