About Ken Gilliland

“As an artist, I do four things; Oils on Canvas (Social Commentary), Drawings of National Parks, Photography of Birds and California Native Plants and 2D/3D Digital work (primarily nature).

I began doing programming and 2D digital art in the mid-1980s with a TI-99/4a. I added to 3D art to my arsenal in late 1990’s.

Today, I work with Poser, DAZ Studio, Modo and Painter. I’ve produced content for Zygote, DAZ3D, Renderosity and Hivewire3D.

My art has been featured in film, TV, games, print, advertising, scientific and museum presentations.

I’m also an inductee into the TI-99/4a Hall of fame!”
