Hi everyone!

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I have posted. "Years". I continue working in scratchboard. " Once you start you can't stop".
I'm stopping by to share some bad news and to give warning to all airbrush users.

My bad news is that I have terminal lung cancer. I have been an x smoker for over 18 years. I have been air brushing for 16 years for my artwork.

My warning to all air brushers is PLEASE use a mask and Respirator no matter how small the job.

I can't be certain, but can't help but think my artwork is what Is killing me

Smile Re: Hi everyone!

I am about to give you my vitals. lol I am 88 years old, been doing scratchboards since Art school in Chicago, IL hahah I misspelled Scratchboards again... anyway, I can't stop doing them. I have a new art form for them, get this, I do lots of small animals on about a 5 x 7 inch board and mount them on a larger wood plaque and add a bit of varnish and bingo! looks good, no frame, no coupons to worry about for Hobby Lobby and a small doohickey on the back to hang them.
anyway, I am glad to be part of this group. I need a lot of help even after all this time. but really I was a commercial artist and Technical Illustrator for 55 years and loved ever day of it. Anyone can send me advice and help me and I d the same. I have a ton of old advice like any old geezer. World stories, jokes, and advice... you name it. Contact me anytime , best regards, geno

Re: Hi everyone!

Very, very sorry to hear your news Donna! What type of ink or paint were you airbrushing?
