About The Artist:

About the Art

Trombones: bare bones anatomy of a classic musical instrument by doctor-turned-artist Don Stewart.

Every one of Don Stewart’s intriguing composite images is drawn entirely by hand, using an ordinary ballpoint pen. Each drawing begins with a pencil sketch, and a long list of possible ingredients. In a process that takes from one to (let's say many) months to complete, Don carefully researches each subject, and considers dozens of ideas and compositions before finally putting ink to paper. 

Silliness and...


By far the most enduring (and endearing) feature of Don Stewart's artwork is the humor. His irrepressible pun-manship is ever present, from  the artist's  simplest sketches to his most complex designs. (Fast Food)



Art With a Purpose: Many of Don 's drawings were created to raise awareness & funds for education, medical research, and to provide ongoing support for service members and their families.  (Navy SEALs)
