Lester Yocum, Glen Burnie, MD Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement I am a husband and father of three great children. My beautiful wife and I have been together since our marriage in 1983.
I have worked in a wide variety of jobs and locations, including graphics shops, photography labs, and television center within the private, commercial, and federal government sectors.
My involvement with the graphic arts goes back to 1983 and includes traditional and electronic arts, illustration, animation, and design. I used to do layouts with Rubylith (remember that?) and technical pens, pasting up waxed galleys for brochure and poster work. QuarkXpress and InDesign are what I use today; Dreamweaver and Plone are my tools of choice for the Web.
I work in gouache, oil, watercolor, ink, colored pencil, pastel, and airbrush. Oil is my preferred medium, but nowadays I'm as likely to use Illustrator, Photoshop, or Painter and a Wacom tablet.
