congrats to 1st post! I recall the exact moment when airbrush design finally went out of demand – that miniature compressor remained in the art shop window early 2000s, being cheaper every year.

Thanks, it's hard to imagine in today's digital age how risky it was to airbrush these large pictures - he spent weeks on some of them and in 1997 decided to stop altogether cited that it was brutal sometimes when the second half of the image did not turn out as planned and ruined the whole picture.
