About Don Colley

selfportraitIn his own words: “Born an Air Force brat in 1954. Spent the first 16 years as a wandering gypsy. Decided in my third year of college to give the art thing a try as parasitology wasn’t working out so good. Exhibiting paintings, prints, and sketchbooks in earnest since 1983. Backed into the occasional illustration gig and am now, after a couple decades of pondering societal woes and coulrophobic parallels, working primarily on visual journaling, urban sketching while returning to a nomadic lifestyle as pencil salesman.”

In 2012, as one of Faber-Castell’s celebrated instructors, Colley led an illustrated road-trip across America, which covered 11 cities where he held drawing and illustration demos using Faber-Castell products. See his Tumblr blog here.
