I loved to draw. As a child, while my parents chased their dreams through many hot, dusty small towns and cities in Texas and Oklahoma, I drew mine, in comic book format. In college, I continued to draw and later I was drawn to Austin and eventually to the Austin Sun where I could draw whatever I wanted. These days, I draw on a computer, but, luck of the draw, I had to wait 15 years from the time I left Texas for the personal computer to be invented.
While I was waiting, I drew Op-Ed political illustrations for syndication. In 1986 the South African aparteid government took offence at a drawing of mine and banned it from the Rand Daily Mail. Since the 90's I've focused on making digital drawings for publications, real and virtual. Currently I'm working on a collection of photographs "Beneath Our Feet / Art and Messages from the Underground" and writing and drawing a children's book.
I live in San Francisco - with my wife, Wendy - where the air is cool, the views are fantastic and the food is unbelievable, draws I can't resist.
