Description Portrait of a Gold Eagle Head, circa 1997, done using pencil on plain old paper. One nice thing about digital reproduction, I was finally able to eliminate the smudges that were all over the background of the original. I was also able to resize this properly, my original cut got it too close to the beak.Are you interested in getting a custom portrait of your pet?

Michael Burt, Thousand Oaks, CA Member Since January 2007 Artist Statement Gorilla Airbrush is located in Thousand Oaks, California. I am Michael Burt, creative artist and illustrator. I currently specialize in doing animal portraiture, but I can create realistic reproductions of anything where I have a reference to work from. As an avid underwater videographer and photographer, my self indulgent art tends towards images that include underwater themes. I am available for making creative artwork from scratch as well as making reproductions and improvements to photos.
I can do paintings and illustrations on any non-automotive substrate. As examples, I can paint on:
o T-Shirts (any color)
o Neoprene wetsuits
o Gear bags
o And many more surfaces...
If you want it painted, contact me and feel free to ask. I primarily use an airbrush with acrylic paints, which can generally adhere to anything with proper preparation and clearcoating. Based on my workspace, I can not do appropriate clearcoats for all surfaces, I will let you know if you will be responsible for getting a clearcoat separately. I am able to work with brush, pencil, and pen and ink as well.
I am not a full time artist, contracts are done strictly on a first come first served basis. Lead times and prices for custom pieces will vary based on the request and materials required.
