THE FLYING DESERT RATS
ARTIST MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF AVIATION ARTISTS
I'm an illustrator specializing in military, sci-fi, nautical, aviation, and any kind of art that makes a difference. I'm old-school riding on that new-tech digital art wave. Trained at the Academy of Art, San Francisco, as a traditional painter and illustrator, I am soaring high in that digital creative cloud we call Computer Graphics or CG. I am a former U.S. Army Armored Cavalry Officer who always kept a brush and canvas nearby. I have a great love for things that fly in the air, cut a wake through the sea, and move out on the land. I am an artist member of the American Society of Aviation Artists. I have illustrated for some of the top corporations on the planet. Doing military, nautical and sci-fi illustrations, I have got to capture not only the accuracy but also the attitude. Yes, attitude! Men and women who have been in harm’s way fighting for their countries or creatures from another planet know what combat looks and feels like. When a company is making a bid for a six or seven plus figure contract they want the best to represent them and the product. That's where I come in. No matter if the product is still on the drawing board or has been in service for 25 years with new upgrades being added, I make it come alive. Some say that old-school illustration has been lost.......... Not true!
There is a real reason for the basics but it doesn't mean you can't break the envelope and see what's on the other side!
