After 10 Years of Hard Work, I Got Back to Basics! Mark Fehlman

I just celebrated my first 10 years as a full time artist. That’s about 30,000 hours of work. For most of my life (starting at about 9 years old) I saw myself as an architect, and had a very successful practice for over 30 years. At 52, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to pursue new career as an artist. Since then, I have never regretted that decision.

Bring Something to the Table, Larry Moore

I've been an artist a long, long time. I took my first steps as a commercial artist at age 13 painting t-shirts, dresses, vans and murals with an airbrush some 45 years ago.

Mom's are good like that. After that, I really started to explore what is out there, past and present. If you are reading this, you are a devotee of creating, of being an artist, and as I am sure you have learned, a very big part of being an artist is growth. I am always looking, experimenting, searching for new ideas, new ways of doing things, never satisfied with my own little status quo. As I look back, change has been the one constant in my life, from airbrushing clothes to graphic design to painting stuff to look like stuff. It's been a good run.
