Concurrently, Rusty was owner and CEO of Pinnacle Publishing company, a medical publishing company specializing in patient education materials distributed through private medical practices. As a medical illustrator, Rusty has produced illustrations for numerous medical journals, patient education publishers, pharmaceutical companies, medical product companies, and medical textbook publishers.
In addition to medical illustration, Rusty has become a nationally recognized landscape painter with representation in seven galleries throughout the western United States. Rusty is also well-known for his sports illustrations that have appeared in Golf Magazine, Golf Digest magazine, Golf Journal and Golf Illustrated Magazine. His sports art has also been published by the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, the United States Olympic Committee, and Golf House, the national museum for the United States Golf Association.

His golf illustrations once landed him a portrait commission and lunch at the 1991 Masters Golf Tournament with 1935 Masters champion Gene Sarazen.
