I've always been awed by my friends who are masters with an airbrush. So when the opportunity came along for me to try it, I admit to being a little apprehensive. It's such a technical medium, and I am technologically challenged! However, with a little rudimentary practice this past summer, I arrived here in Texas ready to work. First, here's the booth, with Celestia in it:
These are my first pieces ever, in airbrush, my samples:
And here are some of my first customers!
I have a ways to go on these, my color application is spotty in places, but I am having fun and learning at the same time. Doing it live is different than playing in my studio, which is the only practice I have had before this.
Not everyone wants color, and even the method for BW is new to me: a 6B lead in a holder.
Celestia is a wonderful teacher/mentor, so it was fitting that she was featured in a news story on the opening of the fair!

I did try a corny dog, and I'm going to draw them on alot of my caricatures, but I don't know if I can stomach chicken-fried bacon!!!
