Ishmael was born in Lewis County, Kentucky, and entered his profession through the Cleveland (Ohio) Institute of Arts and the Art Students League in New York City. For a time he maintained a studio at Troy State University, Troy, Alabama, where he taught drawing, painting, and art appreciation. During his career he illustrated more than thirty-five fiction and nonfiction books. His weekly column “The Power of Faith” appeared in 175 U.S. and Canadian newspapers. He served as an official artist for the United States Air Force; sailed as artist-in-residence on major ocean lines to deliver art lectures and demonstrations; and was the only courtroom artist at the Jack Ruby trial. In addition, he has done paintings of several Air Force Chiefs of Staff.
