My art story goes, it was about 1970, while I was serving in the U.S. Air Force, I picked up an airbrush for artAJ Miller imagework on motorcycles. It was then, that I contracted a passion to create, and the hope for a future in art. That was the beginning of my studies to become ever stronger in the skills of drawing and painting. The need to create and grow led to formal art school at The Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. The GI bill helped to fund my studies. After two years of classes and some part time apprentice opportunities, I was hired out of school into a top national art studio.

I was very fortunate to be surrounded by great seasoned mechanical illustrators. In the commercial field, the challenges of producing quality on deadline are intense. The personalities flared under the pressure of the changes and the deadlines. So, there was plenty of entertainmet.
Today, I create most of my artwork on the computer. I have become very comfortable with the digital media of Photoshop and Illustrator. I also have enjoyed using HTML, Dreamweaver, Painter, Flash, InDesign, MAYA 3D and Premiere Pro.
Some projects still call for the use of paint on board, canvas, or 3-D props. Airbrush is still my favorite favorite tool for painting. Fine Art paintings, life drawing and caricature sketching are opportunities to usecityfantasy-detail inks, pastels, and watercolor for their own special look.
I continue to exhibit my work with fine artists. In 2008, I won a Gold Medal for my Acrylic painting "City Fantasy 2, Turn It Up" in the National Verterans Creative Arts Festival.

Special Thanks to Bob Lever. I was very fortunate that Bob (Mac Tech) was my neighbor at the very time I bought my first computer. His help has been instrumental in the success of my first publishing this site in 1999. He also put up with my many computers frustrations in those early years of this learning adventure. Thank You, Bob. That was a bigger job than anyone would ever want.

Special Thanks to all those who have believed in me and have been patient enough to help me grow.
I know I can be a lot to put up with. I can only hope that they will feel that I was worth the extra work.
