I create my art digitally today, and with over 35,000 hours of expert professional work in the Adobe CC suite. Some say I'm pretty good. With a background in engineering, I have an extremely large tool box of deep knowledge to draw on, and I love to draw whenever I can.
As was the case recently, when after a year and thousands spent, no one could find a way to make 60 of these beautiful DNA crystal trophies. (right) I'll happily share with you how I did.
My name is Rich Palmer, and these are the kinds of words of wisdom my grandfathers would to say.
I had a unique childhood. Raised by both pairs of
grandparents living only doors apart. Both WWII vets.
One grandfather owned a Machine Shop. The other a Cabinet & Shutter Shop in Newport Beach. Both also near each other, and both true artists in their trade. My father's mother, who I primarily lived with owned an Art's & Crafts Shop. I learned young to fear no machine, and curiosity was encouraged.
I built my first V8 by 11, and and by 18, a two story addition with my grandfathers. Art came naturally to me, and by 24 I had my own Graphics & Printing company.
