Description The moon is full and the sky overcast. Dragon Ships swiftly slice through the choppy seas. In this pen and ink illustration, Viking warriors sail the seas in search of plunder and adventure.
William Olson, Owatonna Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement I am a farm boy from southern Minnesota and have been drawing since I was five years old.
Fantasy and Comic Book art are by far my most favorite things to draw, although I also do art from many other genres such as western, wildlife, african safari, architectural, and portraits. Pen and Ink is my favorite medium, but I also do a lot of work with graphite, colored pencil, and watercolor.
I am a graduate of the Commercial Art and Technical Drawing program at South Central College in Mankato, Minnesota. I showcase my work in at least a half dozen shows and competitions each summer where I have won numerous prizes and awards over the last 14 years. I have work on display and for sale year around at the Austin Area Art Center, in Austin, MN, where I am an active member as well as President of their Board of Directors.
Art has been a lifelong pleasure for me and will continue to be so as long as I am able to find inpiration in life. Fortunately, my imagination is endless, so that should be a very long time.
