Our Latest Artist Is Chris MacDonald

Below he will tell us a bit about himself and his work:

Hello, my name is Chris MacDonald and I am a self-taught digital artist that operates PackRat Graphics.  Now don't look away just because I said self-taught, check my work out first before you form an opinion.  You might be surprised!  I chose Zazzle a few years ago after researching the popular PODs, and even then I could tell Zazzle was going to be in the lead and soon.

I don't have a certain style or subject. I create whatever pops in my head.  And I guess another thing that might set me apart from the other artists on Zazzle is that I'm am one of the few, that I know of, that creates everything using only Open Source Software.  My softwares of choice are Blender, GIMP, and Inkscape.

Believe it or not, I started out as a traditional artist.  I painted landscapes for approximately 15 years using oils. Then I discovered computer graphics, and then discovered Zazzle.  Now I'm a ProSeller.  One byproduct of always working on designs is my kids have taken up an interest in art and are always begging for art lessons.

Following are some of his designs, with an embedded link to that product:
