Okay, it's time for round 2 in my effort to catch up on neglected blog posts over the past few months. Hope everyone enjoyed the artwork of Lesley Barrett in my post from last week. Today's post brings us up to the month of September, when my Artist of the Month was Scott Woyak.
Scott is a fellow Pen & Ink artist that I came across at FineArtAmerica, and I really like his work. What I find fascinating is that although Scott discovered that he could draw while in high school, he felt that he was even better at math and science, and that is the road that he traveled. He has a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, and has spent most of his life thinking about numbers, equations and software code, always thinking that he would get back to drawing some day. Marriage, kids, a "real job" and life in general kept him pretty busy, and finally, when he turned 40, he realized that "some day" wasn't going to get any closer unless he took the steps to get there. So he started drawing again in his spare time, and has been averaging 1 - 2 drawings per month for the past few years. I believe that he has built up a pretty impressive portfolio during that time, and would like to share it with my readers. Here are a few examples of Scott's work. As usual, click on the images to view the larger versions at his FineArtAmerica Gallery, and the link in the title above will take you to his Profile page. He also posts to Flickr.com and ImageKind.com, and is a regular contributor to the forums at WetCanvas.com.
