More Captain Albania
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.

New Comic Book Cover Parody
I found an old illustration sample and turned it into a new comic book cover. This sample illustration got me a few aircraft illustration assignments from New York clients in the 1970's.

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.

Another paperback cover from the '60's
This was a fun cover to illustrate and I used myself as a model for this painting which was done using Designers colors and acrylics.

50 years ago
In the 1960's I was a freelance illustrator in Detroit and was represented in New York by Neeley Mulvey Associates. They got me some nice assignments for me including a series of paperback book cover illustrations.

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.

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.

A Visual Delight
My Grandson, Mike, visited me for a couple of days, Lauren, his date, was a stunning lady, very pretty and nice as well. They spent a lot of time at the beach and had kind of a mini vacation. Mike also cooked a great meal for us on Saturday evening, a fun time. [

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.
