Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I am a retired engineer from Caterpillar Inc. and General Dynamics Electric Boat Division, I have a passion for all aspects of aviation, trains, nautical, sci-fi, art, military history, chess, travel, photography and flying large scale R/C aircraft.

I like anything Big and Powerful. I have worked on the design and building of some of the largest mining trucks in the world and also worked on the 688 Class and the Trident Submarines, the "Boomers".

I look forward to being a part of the fellowship here. Hope to learn a lot and enjoy seeing others works for inspiration.

Favorite Quotes:

U.S. Navy Submariner's Creed ~ "There are only two types of ships; submarines, and targets !"

Einstein ~ "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

President A. Lincoln of U.S. Grant ~ "I can't spare this man he fights."

Winston Churchill ~ "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few"

Hyman G. Rickover ~ " Good ideas and innovations must be driven into existence by courage and patience."

Cheers, Mike

Thanks Max, it means a lot to me.

a lot of my "models" are from B/W photos. 

I learned a lot lot from you about colorization, mostly do the research on correct colors. I became interested in nauticals themes and looking at some other artists the past three years and like the painted look with a story. I like the old school look even though it's done with a computer. 

Good of to hear from you. Stay in Touch.

Cheers, Mike
