Drawing has always been a major part of my life. I have done so much of it that I have become quite efficient at the craft. Earning a B.F.A. in Illustration from the prestigious California State University, Long Beach, has helped too.
For storyboarding I have used ink, lead and Photoshop with a Wacom. For my fine art, its oils, or acrylic. My Illustrations : gouache or watercolor. To sculpt I like clay or granite (did a piece at Legoland Ca, called " The Rock Concert ").
To me creating commercial art is almost mathematical. Objective art is pretty obvious. And when I nail it, theres a rush. But if you want to hear names: H.Daumier, H.Bosch, S.Dali, F.Frazetta, B.Vallejo, The Clayton Brothers, A.Grey, R. Williams. et.al.
The rain is coming down today like a cats and dogs. Which reminds me of the time I was snow painting in the WA tundra. We had to put vodka in our bodies to keep warm. And in our rinse water to keep our brushes from freezing. Thats a little tip for you kiddies.
