More Captain Albania

CA Comics No.2 I loved the comic strip Buck Rogers when I was a kid, so I created my own version, a parody titled Captain Albania. It's a great way to practice creating images on the computer and learning Photoshop.

Another AirWar cover

On this cover I used an old ink line drawing which was copied as a film positive and then the color was rendered under on an illustration board, a great technique that I used ti use on many of my assignments years ago. I used to do newspaper ads for Chevrolet using this technique, it was great for newspaper reproduction. AirWar no.6

Aircraft illustrations

Two more paperback book cover illustrations from the 1960's. I always have been a fan of aircraft and started building model planes at an early age. I have an extensive collection of aircraft books that come in handy when doing an assignment like this. AircraftCov1 AircraftCov2

Final new print

This is the final version of my new print which I used on my new promotion brochure. The image is based on an old drawing that I did of my wife Jeanne. Jeanne was a professional model when we lived in Detroit and was always willing to pose. I couldn't get Gloria to pose. Jeanne

Working on new computer prints

I found this old drawing that I did of my wife Jeanne and decided to use it as a basis for a new limited edition digital print. On the computer I can easily create several different color and design versions for evaluation purposes. This is a great way to learn and experiment with the computer.

Sad Birthday

It would be a happy birthday if Gloria were around, but she left us last Friday night after being in a coma for several days. I did speak to her over the telephone and her daughter Holly said that she smiled. She was a wonderful, fun woman, I had ten great years with her that I'll always remember fondly. Untitled-1
