About Ken Gilliland

“As an artist, I do 4 things: oils on canvas (social commentary), drawings of national parks, photography of birds and California native plants, and 2D/3D digital work (primarily nature).
I began doing programming and 2D digital art in the mid-1980s with a TI-99/4a. I added 3D art to my arsenal in the late 1990s.
Today, I work with Poser, Daz Studio, Modo, and Painter.
My art has been featured in film, TV, games, print, advertising, and scientific and museum presentations. I’m also an inductee into the TI-99/4a Hall of fame!”
