The Studio Page 4

An aviation artist is only as good as his/her access to the reference material essential to support the subject matter of the art. With this in mind, Keith is surrounded by 27 file drawers in the studio alone along with a continually growing library of reference books, technical manuals, and handbooks. At his fingertips is an organized library of over 50,000 slides documenting Air Force Art travels, aircraft details, land, sea and cloudscapes, etc.. The ever more important computer desk encroaches on studio space. In another room are an additional 35 letter/legal and 35 flat files, along with a library of aviation periodicals. Add the inevitable memorabilia, and it is an incredibly cluttered, but efficient studio.
