I am a child of the Space Age and a largely self-taught artist.... but the best way to learn is by doing, and I've been at it since I could lift a pencil. Throw in a lifelong passion for astronomy, sci-fi, and scale modeling, and there you have it - the ingredients for Caswell Stew. Though my educational background is in hard science, my professional career has been a meandering path through many graphics/creative roles (illustrator, writer, editor, computer game design, photography, web design, etc, etc...). For the time being I've settled on "digital print maker".
I live in a beautiful corner of the US Northeast with my wife, two hamsters, and a constantly changing cast of wildlife in the yard. I have no super powers… that I can reveal.
