About:I'm a Nerd and a garage inventor. My dad used to say, "There he goes...off to 'The Lair' to invent something. Try not to burn the house down, OK?" I am a Graphic Designer & Illustrator from the South. I love art and electronics. When I can, I try to combine the two. I enjoy creating stipple art, ink & line drawings, paintings and colored pencil renderings. I also enjoy conjuring up some 2D & 3D computer graphics, humongous mega-fractals & vector illustrations. As for my career, I have retired while young from the I.T. industry due to health reasons. My family enjoys the time we now get to spend together and are using it to publish our own articles and to also do fun projects from this site. |--> My current in-house product design goals are: [1.] Develop a communication support device for people with Multiple Sclerosis [2.] Develop an emergency SOS signalling device for hikers, climbers, boaters and those with health and physical challenges. | My family & I will be participating often and look forward to competing for a laser cutting system and other tools as this will help with these & many other projects that we have going on in our home art studio. | The MusicMan profile photo is an ink stipple I made using only a Pilot V7 ink pen and cold-press Strathmore Artist paper.
