Here are 2 new DVD educational titles that I illustrated for Lynda.com . Office 2008 for Mac: Small Business Projects & AutoCAD 2010. When I was growing up my parents encouraged us to study engineering or architecture but when I flunked out of college chemistry it became obvious that I couldn't hack the math and the folks accepted my path in art. The study of architecture has continued to be an interest so when art director Heather Stallings asked if I could create the cover for AutoCAD 2010, I jumped on. My other brothers listened to the folks and excelled in math with one currently the president of Anova Architects and the other, an electrical engineer and the 3rd, an investor in technology. Out of all of them, I'm the only one who looks good in a beret, so there!.
Alternative color version....

I like the way the background mix of line and brushwork works with the painterly foreground, Richard.
Being married to a computer scientist has increased my own appreciation for math exponentially (I think that's the phrase; I'll ask him later).
Your last line made me laugh; now I want to see the beret'd, artiste-o pic of you.

I love how the hands look lined up like that.Especially with the cool background version. Really nice!

That architectural approach is a wonderful addition to this series. Lynda.com has got to be a dream client, not to mention that a gazillion designers are customers.

Thank you, friends.
Zina, I have an exponential dislike for math and recently tried to do long division and I couldn't remember how to do it, I'll stick to art.thx-folks.
