Hi!
I'm Frank and I call myself an illu-PHOTO-strator.

I love photography and art. I am trained in graphic design and I am also a self taught airbrush artist. But it is digital art where I am able to explore other worlds and my dreams!
I strongly believe that what you're happiest doing is what you should be doing!

Growing up I drew endlessly and sometimes (when I was 5) drew superheros and cut them out to play with!

An illu-PHOTO-strator is an artist, or illustrator, who is also a photographer. I try to combine my art with my photography on the computer using photoshop.

A great photographer named John Running once told me to not worry about fame, success or money but to (in his words) "Follow your muse" and everything else would follow! So here I am following my muse!

When I was a kid I started getting fat and the other kids would call me names and make fun of me etc.... Here's the part where I say that my art somehow changed all that or at least turned things into a more positive experience! But that's not what happened. I turned to weed to help me through it and then in turn to music. I learned to play the guitar but because my older brother was killed in a freak car wreck and he played the guitar. so my motives wern't my own. But I did discover art through music because of the album covers! I grew up in he age of vinyl! Twelve inches by twelve inches were the dimensions of the vinyl album cover. I discovered and fell completely in love with the art of Roger Dean!
Music and weed were me and my best friends thing! We formed a band! We never got together to play! LOL I don't know why I tried to get us all together but when I did we just got high........LOL
I figured it out years later when I finally admitted to myself that guitar wasn't my thing. I figured out that the guitar was my dead brother's thing and art was mine.
