When I was growing up, I took journeys at night, flying over Puget Sound. I was never afraid and it was so beautiful up there. This image was made for the altered book project Emily started. There is a quote around the picture:
"God of the Wild, you are different from what I expected. I cannot predict you. You are too free to be captured for the sake of my understanding. I can't find you in the sentimentalism of religion. You are everywhere I least expect to find you. You are not the force that saves me from the pain of living. You are the force that brings me life even in the midst of pain." -Adolfo Quezada
I attended Museum Art School from 1970-1972, studying with Robert Palladino, Miss Kennedy, Robert Hanson, Manuel Izquierdo, Charles Kelley, Michel Russo, and those other guys. Desperate to become financially independent, I ditched school and became a technical illustrator, typesetter, production artist, photographer's assistant, copywriter, editor, technical writer, trade show coordinator, darkroom technician, proofreader, administrative assistant, and marketing communications coordinator.
I still like drawing the best.
