Guy W. Thomas is an artist’s artist. His intricate original Pen and Ink drawings, cartoon characters and various reproductions span a wide gamut of subject matter. From the stately Victorian homes, and an isolated old wagon, to the inquisitive lion and even a turkey playing golf, Mr. Thomas brings real life to all of his projects. Having mastered the unforgiving medium of Pen and Ink, he devotes 40 to 60 hours of intense concentration, applying layer upon layer to each piece produced in this intricate and painfully slow artistic discipline. The richness and depth of this is fully evident in the shadowing effects he accomplishes by applying this subtle layered influence on each hand mastered piece.Mr. Thomas’s art career began in high school with scholarships awards granted to him in the mediums of sculpture, oil painting, water color and cartooning; demonstrating his early gift and versatility in the field. Upon graduation from high school and entering college, he was drafted into our nation’s service. The U.S. Army made use of his talents as a calibration technician and the last six months in country in Vietnam as a combat artist. While working in that capacity, with a variety of military personnel in the Mekong Delta region, much of his work was placed in the U.S. Army Archives in Washington, D.C.
For the last thirty plus years, Guy W. Thomas has worked as an award winning graphic designer and art director for a number of advertising and promotional agencies, as well as owning and operating his own advertising concern. Upon being accepted as a contributor to the 1989 Laguna Art-A-Fair Festival, in Laguna Beach California, he subsequently mixed his professional efforts between computer graphic design, original graphic design and fine art endeavors.
