  • These are Crayons?

    Don Marco was born in Northern Minnesota in the late 1920's. He was interested in art even before starting school. He began his career as an Air Traffic Controller in the Army Air Corp and retired from Honolulu International Airport in 1973. Much of his spare time was spent as a professional artist.

    Don started developing a technique for creating fine art with Crayola Crayons. Shortly after retiring, he published his first print. His work drew attention in southern California, including commissions from Burt Reynolds and a one-man show at his Dinner Theater in Florida.

      Basically Crayons are oil pastels, one of my favorite mediums. Great artwork!!
      If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

              That's beyond impressive actually, I've tried getting a common crayon to cooperate, and they really have no inherent desire to do so

              Pencil crayons of artist grade are not very cooperative either.

              But those pictures almost look like oil based which is sure surprising.
              Life is change. Built models for decades.
              Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
              I didn't for a long time either.

                I wish I could create War battles with crayons like that.
