I was drawing and painting for years before ever touching a computer -- when I did start creating digital images (early 80's), the entire image had less data than color icons have now.
I've done a bit of everything...
Illustration: book (incl. Ray Bradbury & Stephen King), magazines (incl. WIRED), web (incl. SciFi Channel).
Animation: for the Hayden Planetariun, even a stop in Hollywood (Johnny Mnemonic).
Graphics Software Development: most recently 'GroBoto'.
...and countless other things over a 30 year period.... that's right I'm old.
Just started producing some Concept art for the Content site 3DOcean... a curious notion to offer work in this form. Interested to see what happens.

Also getting back into digital paint after years of pursing 3D CG stuff, while still (always) pursuing the GroBoto software project.

I prefer to 'see with the medium' -- finding the image by pushing paint or pixels -- seeing what emerges. That's why have a love/hate thing with 3D. On one hand it's magic -- on the other it's all too tight & clean, everything is overstated, over-delineated... 'rendered' is certainly the right word -- little room for the viewers imagination to play a role.
