Most of what you see here is older work from art school circa '78 - '80.

I created pieces with all kinds of media including illustration, pencil renderings, scratch board, and of course my final senior project - a 3-D cutaway model of Bag's End.

I worked as a picture framer and shop manager/trainer for over 12 years for companies such as Old American Store and Michael's Arts and Crafts.

I worked as a sign painter as well from a very young age - 15 or 16, before going to art school. I was monogramming cars, pinstriping, and creating truck lettering to boot.

In the early 1980s, I moved to A.Z. with my brother and we used an old school bus as a moving van/camper. I decided to store my things - artwork and pictures included, in the bus. Unfortunately, some kids played around inside and burned it to the ground. I lost all the photos of my early sign work, truck signs, ice cream trucks, race cars and motorcycles.

I have done a variety of sign work as well as model building both large and small. I've created everything from small Klingon shuttles to TARDISes to a custom spacecraft refit of a Spindrift model.

I worked for a commercial sculpture shop in Raleigh, N.C. called T-Bear & Co. I came up with some of my own characters like Mr. Samwise J. Jabberwocky IV and his amazing familiar Mc Kaat.

I've also worked for a company in Phoenix that made pressure garments used by burn patients to control their scarring. I was a pattern drawer for that company for a short time.

I've designed T-shirts for pig pickins, reunions, birthdays, robotic dragons, and talking robots for a hardware store, I've created fake security cameras and of course my R2-D2 which I created in 1980 and has been my mascot in the studio ever since!

Calligraphy

I've done a fair amount of calligraphy, truck lettering, and sign painting both big and small. One has to master two main crafts in order to become a commercial artist:

  1. Illustration
  2. Calligraphy/Sign Painting

I'm not much of an illustrator, but I'm a damn fine calligrapher and sign painter. I've been fascinated by languages, especially old languages, history, and archeology, all my life. I am fluent in Rune Script, and Rune Works. I've enjoyed working with pen and inks and I love map making.

In the early 80s, I made a batch of calligraphed pen and ink illustration scrolls mounted on old barn wood with old handmade nails. I copied psalms, excerpts from christmas carols, quotes from famous folk, and cartoon characters etc. onto the scrolls. I produced 150 pieces and sold all but a few. The photos of these were lost in the fire.

In the early days I used to spend a lot of time "building inventory" on nights and weekends and then 3 or 4 times per year, I would liquidate my inventory.

Now I call myself a Prototype Artist

Everything you see on this site are prototypes and ARE NOT FOR SALE, at any price, anytime, for any reason!!! Got it!!! (unless you see a price tag!)

My prototypes are examples of what I am able to make. I have made them both on a shoestring budget and without compensation. Imagine what I can make if someone gives me a real budget to work with! Check out my webcast. If you would like to become a sponsor, please Contact Me.
