The Master Crayola Artist from Pam


Don Marco….. The Master Crayola Artist


Don Marco was born in Northern Minnesota in the late 1920’s. His interest in art was evident even before starting school. As a young adult in the Army Air Corp, he began his life’s career in Air Traffic Control, which continued until his retirement from HonoluluInternational Airport in 1973. Much of his spare time was spent as a professional artist.

Before retirement, Don started developing a technique to create fine art, using Crayola Crayons.. Shortly after retiring, he published his first print. Living in Southern California, his work was in demand, including commissions from Burt Reynolds and a one-man show at his Dinner Theater in Florida .

    Amazing talent.

    I did have to chuckle seeing that he is from MN. No wonder he was able to develope such talent. I mean having to live indoors for three quarters of his life…

    This is beyond inspiring, looking at these images makes me want to pick up the pencils again and just draw, zone and be… perhaps in the week when there is an eye in the storms 🙂

    Beautiful can’t stop staring!!!

    It is amazing how each of us can look at and use the same things, yet some of us take it to the next level of creativity. Looks like this is one of those people! Great work!
