DS Art is a working studio gallery, a mom & pop shop featuring the visual humor of Don Stewart, and the illustrative magic of Sue Ellen Brown (ZooLN). We're located off the beaten path in a little suburb of Birmingham, Alabama, (We can see Vulcan from here.)
To see what we have hiding inside, click this thing:
We do get a lot of questions. We even come up with a few answers occasionally. When we have a little more head-scratching time, we'll add a few of them here.
Why is everything in black and white?
I used a ballpoint pen in all of my science classes, and didn't really see any need to change when I visited the Art department. I'm stubborn like that.
He does it with a pen? Just a pen?
Well, I sketch a lot in pencil first, but yes, the final drawings are done with a plain old ballpoint pen. Usually a PaperMate, fiine point.
What if he makes a mistake?
(Don says he doesn't make mistakes. His wife has experience to the contrary.)
Do you think you're being funny?
Yes. (At least I keep myself amused, most of the time.)
Can you make a living doing this?
It’s been thirty years, and nobody has said I have to stop.
Are you crazy?
Probably. But if there is a cure for this, I’m really not interested.
