I found a scrap of paper which is 4.5 ” wide and 2.5″ high with embossed shapes and light color on it. I took a digital photo of it and placed the photo into Photoshop and painted over the photo with Photoshop brushes. The final digital image is 21″ by 11.5″. I see a fish in this image.

The above fishing illustration,which I created for the Maritz Motivation Company Book of Awards, is the beginning of my career creating fishing illustrations. Charlie Gardner ,who worked for Mulvey Associates, as a representative that showed my illustrations in New York City, showed this illustration and other pen and ink illustrations I had created for Maritz, to Field and Stream Magazine in 1978 and got me the assignment shown below. I received other illustrations from Field and Stream,and for the past thirty five years other illustrations from most of the major outdoor magazines.

On November 26,2011 I began to post visual images I have created in my lifetime. The images below were created during 2010,the majority of these images were printed and distributed for use as scrapbook paper.

Largemouth Bass leaping out of water

During 2010 and 2011 I have been creating art that has been used on for sale scrapbook paper. The client is Sugartree. The printed size is 12″ x12″. The original art was painted using pencil,black ink and watercolor paint on bond paper. The client likes the subject to be positioned on the lower part of the paper with a simple background because scrap-bookers will be placing photos over much of the paper.

detail from fishing illustration

I created this illustration in 1991 for a magazine called Update, published at this time by Southwestern Bell.The article it was used for was called “A reel love affair” which was about Americas fishing industry.The art director was Alan Landholt . Alan was a classmate at Washington University art school and was one of my favorite art directors I worked with. The size of the painting was 19″ by 18″ and was drawn and painted on vellum. I did a pen and ink drawing first using a 000 technical pen and then colored the drawing with liquid acrylic paint. I used this illustration in mailers which were sent to outdoor magazines.
