I wasn't sure whether or not to do one of these...for the simplest of reasons that I really don't have much of a story to tell...Okay,here goes.
I've been drawing ever since I was a kid.In fact,my incessant doodling in class often got me into trouble for not paying attention,which is why I never really did well in math...or science...or history...or geography etc. etc.In high school,I did reasonably well in English and literature but that's it.I was never an A student;best I could do was a C.I had to go to summer school,then night school...at that was to graduate!The only high points from my high school years?Three years with the chorus,and the time I won the school-wide crazy hat contest by wearing an old bandmaster's hat and some old bifocals of my father's...I was trying to be Benny Hill.
My college years,not much to tell there either...once again,not much of a student,spending way too much time at the rec center.I did become a volunteer cartoonist for the "other" student newspaper,the one run out of the small office they shared with the rugby club...my editor asked me to do a cartoon about that,so I did.
Still with me?Like I said,not much of a story...tell you what,I'll skip over the years I spent washing dishes on the graveyard shift at a Denny's and get right to when my nephews told me about DevArt,about two years after we got our first computer...once I learned of the paint function,I couldn't wait to try it.After years of holding the pencil/pen/watercolor marker in my hand and moving it around on the surface of whatever my canvas was,I had to learn a whole new way of creating art,moving a "mouse" around while watching what was happening on the screen,all the while mentally putting the two together.Patience and perseverance aren't exactly two of my strongest virtues;they're probably what prevented me from pursuing painting beyond college,and as much as I was fascinated by airbrushing,I never even thought about trying it.
When I found about DevArt,I immediately jumped at it...as I've never worked as a professional artist,the internet gives me something I wouldn't have otherwise...an audience.
The only bump in the road during the five-odd years I've been here...was the first time they deleted art of mine that violated their standards.Don't mind telling you,I was mad as hell...but what could I do?It's their site,I'm just a guest.Fortunately,my much-more-computer-savvy-than-I'll-ever-be nephews once again provided the solution,showing me how to set up my own blog.
And that's it.End of story.Real nail-biter,huh?
Anyway,out of my gallery,here's the stuff I consider some of my best:
