    Greetings and Salutations. After a 20-something year hiatus, I have dusted off the compressor and am getting back into this addiction. I reside in the southwest burbs of Chicago and am primarily interested in illustration/fine art. Currently use a couple flavors of Iwata Eclipse and occasionally an Olympos Micron MP-200B (which is entirely too good for the likes of me). Fiddle with either Com-Art or Createx Illustration paints. Other interests include competitive shooting and other things that go bang.

    Welcome from the U.K. John. Pleased to hear you’ve picked the brushes back up again. I love Chicago, sadly I’ve only spent about 3 days there over two separate trips, but always loved the city.

    24x24 from back in the day - this was the 90’s and the last painting I did until I stumbled across Mitch a few weeks ago on YouTube and reignited the bug...
