a freelance computer graphic artist who enjoys creating science
fiction art and producing
multimedia for the web. Most of the time I produced commercial
multimedia, animation and computer graphic art designed to
inform, entertain, inspire and motivate audiences. My artwork
is used for web design, corporate communications, new product
introduction, business meetings, conventions, books, magazines
and CD covers. My creative skills are concept, theme, graphic
design, storyboards, special effects, digital photography, computer
graphics, multimedia and web site design. However, I have always
had the dream of becoming a science fiction illustrator.
A few years ago I decided it was
time to pursue my dream and enter the world of science fiction.
Everyday while other people rush off to work in the city I get
to stay home and work in my studio creating computer art. It's
wonderful to be able to concentrate all my efforts on the work
I truly enjoy. Science Fiction Art. While working at my computer
I sometimes like to imagine that one day my simple spaceship
illustrations will be the inspiration that sparks a young person
somewhere to become involved in space science and develop the
worlds first warp drive.
I have been working with various
computers creating art for over 30 years. In the 1960's I learned
how to program my first computer using punch cards on an IBM
as big as a house. One summer I actually worked inside a computer
wiring circuit boards. In the 1980's when small personal computers
became available I had to have one. I became obsessed with programing
games and creating art on the Atari 400, 800, 130XE and finally
the Atari 620. As each new computer became more powerful I spent
more and more time improving my creative skills. Today, I have
two computers. My master computer is a New Power Macintosh G4
with 3 monitors: 17 inch, 15 inch and 14 inch RGB, that's powered
by 512 Megs of Ram, and a Fromac Studio Analog to DV digitizer.
For backup and large over night rendering projects I use my
new Special Edition iMac G3.
I am skilled in the following
computer graphic programs.
Strata 3D Pro
Ray Dream Studio
Fractal Design Poser
Adobe Illustrator® 10
Adobe After Effects
Final Cut Express
