Description This is the second of my Nikola Tesla art pieces to date. I plan a series of artistically rendered interpretations of Nikola at different ages. This piece started out as a sketch, and then was digitally manipulated in a series of steps that I'm not sure I can reproduce! I'm planning on each portrait to be unique in itself, and still portraying this dear soul. I've been reading about him for years before there was an internet. He deserves all the honor we can give him.
Paul Simone, Fayetteville Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. My so called 'right brain' has been active from the start. However, life got in the way and my 'left brain' won out. I got steered in the direction of electronics first via the US Air Force and later via the American Telephone & Telegraph company. But the GI Bill paid off and I got as much education as I could. One of my degrees is in art.
Now that I'm retired I can once again return to my 'right brain' and, through the wonders of computers, allow my 'left brain' to participate in expressing my artistic feelings by using pixels as well as oils, acrylics, watercolors, pen and pencils.
In 1-1-2014 I started converting my cartoon strip 'Hobo Robo' into an adventure series. It is completely overhauled and illustrated by me.
The eBook titled 'Hobo Robo - Adventures On New Georgia' is now published on Amazon Kindle and now also a paperback! A total of four books are now available on Amazon. This adventure series is an epic trip into the world of robots and AI on the distant planet of New Georgia.
Now Hobo has his own website: https://www.hoborobo.net
Thru the website you can find all the books on Amazon, and so much more about our robot heroes. Check it out, Paul Simone
