I want to inspire imagination  by merging my fantasy art paintings with the digital world. I combine mediums to create vibrant and memorable pieces that bring awareness to different topics today. Also, as a great grandfather, I want to keep my family proud for generations to come. 

I have been an artist for 60 years, but I am new to the world of digital art. I find it refreshing, engaging, and I feel that my work is still undiscovered, and will be very unique and desirable to collectors.

I hope you will consider me on this platform, as it would be my greatest dream. 

To the left you can view some examples of my latest digital works created on Procreate.

This first piece ois one of my latest works called Zombie Prom. I created the upper part of the image as a poster design. I decided to add a crypt below the dancing zombies, and the crypt soon filled with the many characters from my head. They oddly resemble people I know and love.

I had to include one of my dragons. I have a series of  56 dragons that I have created. 
This one is called, “All In -When You Play Cards With Dragons You Only Cheat Once…” I was thinking back to my security days at the Poker Room in the old Leelanau Sands Casino. I would watch the poker players faces as they bluffed, bantered, and boasted to beat their opponents.

This piece is about the wasteland world in the hands of Bayer/Monsanto. It shows the  desecration of worldwide communities by pesticides, neonicotinoids, and evil marketing that is a result of their search for the last true seed. This is a statement piece hoping to bring awareness to others, because awareness brings change.

This is an homage to the eccentric Salvador Dali, edvard munch, and my daughter the contact juggler. Celebrating the flights of fancy fine art, and film.

To show some variety I added a piece here called Apocalypse. I created this when I was a senior in High School. It is now digitized, and restored after many many years being unseen- like a lot of my art. 

Thank you so much for considering me to be a part of this movement!
