DescriptionSky Guardian deftly swoops between the towers as he desperately tries to evade the Sinister Sky Squad. With rocket packs blazing and lazer blasters sizzling, the evil mercenaries want nothing more than to eliminate the superhero who always foils their plans. This pen & ink/watercolor piece is part of my City of Adventure Series where I use comic book style illustrations to spotlight various landmarks around my hometown of Austin, Minnesota.
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.
