Written to help traditional artists transition to building art digitally, The Photoshop and Painter Artist Tablet Book continues to receive rave reviews.
As our art community has grown I’ve met so many wonderful artists and photographers embracing the new tools and techniques—and seen such beautiful artwork! One of my favorite things about traveling, speaking, and writing is meeting wonderful new people who have all sorts of different experiences and skill levels in the world of art and digital imaging.
I’m really pleased you've found this site! I want the site to be something you can immediately use and enjoy. There are many different things to see. You'll find Painter brush samples, textures, articles I've written, the latest information on my books, links to artists and other resources, galleries from some of my favorite digital artists, and of course, my own art gallery.
