~~~A Note about artistic approach~~~
While most graphic artists today are using computer generated images, I too am well versed using these tools but prefer traditional methods & techniques.  Though creating "by hand" is generally more time consuming, there is a special quality in art that cannot be achieved with software.  The beauty of a freehand line, a colorful brush stroke in the light, or especially the feel of a hand-held chisel being hammered over a stone sculpture.  Anyone can see the difference in the executed piece.  Thankfully there is still a place for those who understand & appreciate finer works that can only be done in this manner.

As an architect, I have an advantage of putting ideas to paper with great precision & detail graphically.  The process, however, is still abstract as the final product will either represent or become something three-dimensional.  I constantly use this method with every  idea.  As much as I plan ahead, though, the finished piece will always differ in some way.  It is the nature of the medium, especially stone.  What finally appears is a new beautiful object of art that has revealed itself.  I'm always amazed at the results.
