Fred's (aka, "-watcher-") artistic abilities become quickly apparent to his viewers. His lines and compositions are spot on. His loosely sketched figures perfectly capture postures and positions as the people study and relax and enjoy their surroundings whether that be a local coffee shop, or the animals as they lounge in their peaceful zoo settings. The eye moves effortlessly thoughout.
Fred posts his work on his flickr site which is loaded not only with amazing sketches and drawings of people in cafe and shops, but also with exotic zoo animals, and "oriental abstractions."
And, rumor has it, before retiring to a life of artistic pursuits, Fred was an instructor at West Point!
