    Hello, folks.

    An antiquity had just joined your site.

    35 years in the trade, started off laying out business cards in 1977 and sold my artistic soul so thoroughly that I can't even feel the void anymore.

    Anyone remember hot wax?

    I digress.

    Currently at Superior Signs on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay (Grasonville, Maryland). Been there for 17 years, mostly coro trash these days (I removed all of the mirrors in the house). Prior to that, 6 years at Phil's Photo in Washington, D.C.

    Anyone here remember photo-typositors?

    I worked my way up to Manager of the Camera/Special Effects Department. The United States Air Force had the displeasure of my Graphic services for the prior 3 years 4 months and nineteen days veterans here will understand the exactness of DD214 fact). Thank you, George Bush (version 1) for the Force Reduction Act (plus 44 days of terminal leave).

    Like most folks in this craft, I'm an Artist. It's all I know and it's all that I care to know.

    While I apologize for the lengthy intro, know this . . .

    My only true goal is to fill a void with an image, message or news that is worthy of reproduction.

    Anywhere close to Johnson City?

    The Ridgewood Restaraunt (just outside of that fine town) served
    me and mine the finest Bar-B-Que that I have ever had the pleasure to
    consume.

    I appreciate the welcome.

    Owww! Hot Lead, I am thoroughly impressed.

    Set a couple of headlines on a 'ole Miele back in the day.

    This site was a wise choice!

    Thank you for the welcome, know this . . .

    Love this craft and all that it will drain from you.

    Here's the payoff, what we do is inspire (or at least
    that is what we should aspire to) . . .

    and if we do it well enough, millions could be inspired.

    About an "hourish" from Johnson City. I too have enjoyed the BBQ at the Ridgewood...you are correct it's great stuff! I have also did the hot wax as well as the lead type thing. I had the "pleasure" of being a journeyman 4/C stripper back in the day as well. My kids enjoy telling people that their dad used to be a stripper. It's hard for their friends to imagine a 6'2" 300 pound stripper I guess.
