REMEMBER CRAYONS?

Updated on March 19, 2011

AMAZING CRAYON ART!

Remember coloring? The lovely boxes of bright colored sticks that you used to make big suns shining over houses and stick figures, and trees and flowers? Well tell your kids to sharpen up their Crayons and for inspiration take a look at these photos of the art work of Don Marco.

Born in l920, as a school- boy Don Marco showed a proclivity for art but it was not until after he retired from the Air Traffic Control that he developed a technique using Crayons.

His work has been featured on CBS TV, KUSK TV in Arizona, and shown in such publications as Plate Collector Magazine, Rainbow Reporter, Alternative Trends Magazine, Fox News, Duluth News Tribune, Living North Magazine and many other outlets.

Burt Reynolds commissioned him for a portrait, which is shown here in a photo, as well as photos of such notables as Clint Eastwood and James Arness and some unbelievable scenics.

You can visit his website at : www.themastercrayonartist.com and view more of his work and buy prints if you wish.

Over one million prints have been sold of his work.

And it is all crayons.
