Bob Rankin, Leavenworth WA Member Since March 2012 Artist Statement My goal is to simplify complex ideas that communicate quickly. Rankin design, in business for 35 years, produces visual solutions for many types of projects. I have a print making background and sketch in dry media mostly, all my projects start at my easel. My illustrations and photos have been published in many project for clients. I have won national and international awards for corporate work. When I sketch I try to convey the feeling about the place. Rather than make a picture I am making a drawing not photographic. I hope that I share the quiet passion that I feel for a scene.
