About this store
Freelance Illustrator My gallery pages are an accumulation of many years work especially featuring my lastest digital art. I'm adding new additions to my work on an ongoing basis so check back often. I've worked in oil, pastel, acrylic, pencil and digital art. My fine art paintings are in private collections throuhout the United States. My digital art paintings are in advertising, on book and CD covers, on company logos and in private collections on a worldwide basis. My work is on many websites on the Internet. Go to my "Links" page at www.coreyfordgallery.com to be directed to them. A lot of you know me by my online names of Coreycupcake or Catmando. The computer programs I use to make my digital art are: Vue, Poser, Terragen, Bryce, Daz Studio, Apophysis, AlienSkin - Plugins, Flaming Pear - Plugins, Photoshop, Painter, Universe - Plugins, Universe - Stand Alone, Paint Shop Pro, Strategen, World Machine and Ultra Fractal. I am mostly self-taught and have developed my art through the years. As you can see I am interested in portraying a wide variety of subjects. Most artists stick with one subject their entire lives but I can't do that because I am interested in so many things. My favorite subjects are horses, unicorns, pegasi, outer space and science fiction. And I can't forget the ocean. I love everything about the ocean. The creatures that live in it, the ships and boats that sail on it and the men that work on the sea such as fishermen and sailors. I'm inspired by the works of Winslow Homer and Frederic Edwin Church and all the wonderful digital artists that we see on the Internet. Awards: "Artist of the Month" in Warren, Michigan in 1986.
