He eventually became interested in the airbrush. He created many pieces in that medium and they started to sell well, he started doing ‘Promo Pieces’ for small automobile related firms, this developed into a graphic arts business for him. In the mid ‘80’s another artist encouraged him to look into doing computer art. At that time digital art was still a new thing, but the ‘slick look’ of the art got him. He bought his first computer (an Apple II Mac) and taught himself to illustrate with the tools these “magic boxes” had, and the “digital” bug bit him. Today he works out of his sunny Southern California digital studio creating some killer art.
It takes about 15hrs to create and complete a finished piece. He builds the images entirely on a computer screen from scratch. He uses photos or pictures for reference only.
