Ken loved to paint. He was an artist from his earliest childhood memories.
At age four, he was using professional drafting equipment supplied by his father, an employee of Keuffel & Esser.
After graduating from California State University Long Beach with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration,
he worked as a technical illustrator for the aerospace industry; where he produced drawings for the military
and the Colombia space shuttle. After 1983, Ken worked as a commercial freelance illustrator and
for two major illustration studios. He worked on a variety of projects including book covers, trade and consumer ads,
point of purchase displays, product packaging, magazine covers and billboards. He started his career in traditional media,
and then worked digitally using Photoshop in a wide range of styles from realism and stylized realism
to licensed characters and photo retouching.

Los Angeles based blues musicians. He also could be found in the pits with his friends Team Craig Racing who run a fuel dragster.
