Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 10 Art Competition
Don Ristow – Forest Lake, MN
I am an award-winning Graphic Designer and Illustrator with a wide range of both traditional and digital imaging skills. I have earned 2 college degree’s in the arts and have built a strong reputation for producing cutting-edge graphic designs & powerful illustrations for both print and web media. My passion for the arts and my career as a creative professional is immeasurable!
Currently I am aggressively seeking opportunities to gain exposure for my unique and original ink paintings that I call the Marsician Collection. My 28 pieces include several whimsical and thematic figures that have taken on a life of their own and are certainly a true joy to illustrate. A simple black stroke is crucial to begin the development of my characters. Equally as important is the absence of another stroke elsewhere. In addition I have expanded the original golf collection to include digital color with imaginative backgrounds!
I am excited for this wonderful opportunity to submit a portion of my Par 3 golf series in the Artist Portfolio Magazine’s competition. I will be crossing my fingers with high hopes that I may be considered as one of the selected winners!
