since 1995. That has given me most of my ideas and repertoire of illustrations lately.
The Internet has changed the notion that a guy from Salt Lake has very little chance of becoming big in the graphics
field. I'm by no means professional and feel very honored to be asked to share this spotlight with the previous artists. A guy with no formal art training would have almost a zero chance of being recognized even 10
years ago besides having worldwide exposure, which I've had since bringing my web site online three years ago.
I have dabbled in just about all types of media from pencil to airbrush. When I got my first XT
computer and found out what could be done with it back in 1988, I have rarely returned to traditional art. I have used CorelDraw since version 1.2 but thank the editor of Computer Credible daily for introducing me to
Xara. It was love at first sight and I rarely use anything else.
People often ask me what program I use to do my illustrations. On one hand I wish more people knew about Xara but secretly, I'm glad they
don't because it gives me a giant edge over non-users! The illustrations invariably turn out better than expected.
