This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is courtesy of the artist's wife:

Ted Coconis was awarded a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago during his grade school years, but instead of working toward academic success, he abandoned his formal education and headed off to experience grand adventures: first as a pilot in the Air Force and then as a seaman in the Merchant Marines.  By the age of 20, he committed himself to his true calling and began work as an artist—starting in Chicago and ending up in San Francisco, where he landed his first free-lance commission.  It wasn’t long before a major art studio in New York recognized his talent.  He heeded the call, moved east and quickly established himself as one of this country’s preeminent illustrators, gaining international recognition and fame for his outstanding film posters.

Ted’s paintings have appeared in every major magazine from Cosmopolitan and Playboy to Ladies’ Home Journal and Good Housekeeping.  He was commissioned to create paintings for movie posters such as Fiddler on the Roof, Dorian Gray and Man of La Mancha among many others.  His art has been on book covers  including those of Vladimir Nabokov and Jerzy Kosinksi, each of whom acquired a painting for his personal collection.  On the authors’ requests, Coconis illustrated most of James Michener’s novels for Readers’ Digest Condensed Books as well as Betsy Byars’ Newberry Award-winning children’s book Summer of the Swans.
 
About 30 years ago Coconis decided to concentrate on his own work while living in Paris and the Greek Islands, and resulting were figurative and portrait paintings. He and his wife Kristen live and work in a small fishing village on the Gulf coast of Florida and in an even smaller fishing village on the bold coast of Maine.
