I have been an artist all my life and I have used many mediums – graphite, watercolor, wood, clay etc. However, photography has been my greatest passion and the best way for me to capture the landscapes, wildlife and time spent in the wilderness. Now I am transforming some of these images and adding to them to illustrate the stories I am writing for my book. With the aid of a digital drawing tablet, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, I can combine photos and drawings in a way I have never done before. My goal with this artwork is to add visual appeal and ask the reader to see and feel the moments I am describing.
The sample image posted here is of a dear friend of mine on the best fishing trip we ever shared on the Arkansas river during a caddis (an aquatic insect that trout go crazy for) hatch near Salida, Colorado.
