Computer Graphics revolution

A digital art revolution

We are currently in a popular art revolution, similar to the one a century ago when photography was invented - and suddenly almost anyone could make their own photo-realistic pictures. Now inexpensive digital art tools, online digital art portals and artist's sales sites like Fine Art America, have opened a world of image making, sharing and art sales to millions of people, whether or not they've mastered traditional art tools.

Digital art - Join the revolution!

If you're looking to get started in digital art I suggest a visit to my Squidoo Lens for a jump start.

From the soul with feeling!

What about the spiritual, soulful side of art making? That's harder to teach and more personal, but it's something I discuss in my book and my art blog.

Wishing you a creative future!
