So far in his career as an illustrator, Forbes has won over 55 Awards of Excellence from the New York Society of Illustrators and has been commissioned many times over by several big names in industry and media, including: Sports Illustrated, Time Magazine, Eastman Kodak, Pepsi-Cola, American Airlines and ABC Television. Named the 1986 Sports Artist of the Year by the U.S. Sports Academy, Forbes was selected by the Olympic Committee as the official artist for the 1988 Summer Olympics. Forbes has designed over 20 commemorative postage stamps, including the Lou Gehrig and Jesse Owens commemoratives, "The Olympians" and the "America the Beautiful" series, and, most recently, he was commissioned to create the Ronald Reagan stamp.
