A picture of an eagle coming out of a volcano done with colored pencil and markers. It was a grid box design I did back in 1988 when I used to draw a lot. The original design came from a pellet advertisement for .177 and .22 caliber pellets. I no longer have the ad, but the art remains and is framed, hanging in a place to admire. This image has history for me and some of my ideas. The image I called "Talains erupting", and I got some ridicule for the spelling of talons. I kept the spelling the way it was and eventually used it as my gaming name for arcade games and on-line gaming. I still use the name to play with! Eventually I have used Talain as my blogging name. I believe that Art is were ideas come from, dreams are imagined, reality takes place and persistance pays off.
