I started writing books about my friend Tina when I was fourteen, I think it was then that I set my sights on becoming an artist. By the time I was twenty one I published my first book, "Searching for a girl named Tin Can" through Trafford publishing in 2004. This was before I had any artistic skill and I think I was just relying on pure determination to get something out there. Of course I can cringe alot now when I look at the book but you have to start somewhere. Thanks for everything Tina! I will do another book eventually I just don't know when. This book is still available to the best of my knowledge worldwide, amazon.com has it and if you want to see my early work, this definately documents it.
Ahh! My first great watercolor. I had a burning desire to learn how to watercolor, I worked my ass off to learn the concepts and I did! I owe a great debt to Camille Lapointe Lyons my instructor. This is one of my best buds, Travis and his daughter-Monochromatic Watercolor-2008.
Before Bill, there was Goldie Hawn-Charcoal-2006. This one took six months to finish. At the time I made this I was going through a very difficult time personally and I wondered if I'd ever finish this. However now that I look back, a beautiful drawing came out of that turbulant time. I had the pleasure of meeting this legendary superstar, it was one of my happiest days and found her to be very sweet and I thought if any star deserved to be captured it was her.
