The Art Gallery

I am a self-taught artist. My medium of choice is a #2 pencil and a sheet of typing paper, with a bit of facial tissue or toilet paper or a cotton swab for shading. I've done a little dabbling in acrylic painting (the source of the background for this page), and I've tried using colored pencils, but this seems to work best for me.

Below, you'll find a collection of sketches I've done over the years, from my college days (beginning in 1970) to the present, including illustrations for some of my works.
