David R. Morton, 40, has been teaching airbrush for the past 12 years and airbrushing a total of 19 years. He was in the U.S. Navy for 3 years and the reserves for three more. After the Navy, David finished art school and found that you either teach art or you sell it, but airbrush allowed both. Academia was too structured for the flair that David wanted to incorporate in not only his artwork, but in his teachings. David was inspired by the great airbrush talent of a very prominant artist in Indianapolis named David Crowe. David Crowe was a pioneer in airbrush to say the least. He took airbrush artwork into a fine art realm in which sparked a passion and revolution for the inception of not only a new way of thinking about airbrush, but many ways also to instruct it. David has always felt that if you truly love something, then you will find a way to make it work in your life. You will encompass an unbridled, unsolicited passion, and nothing will stop you. David has taught and maintained a highschool airbrush program for many years, and has taught all over the Midwestern U.S. David has always tried to set a different standard for the airbrush skill beyond t-shirts and flames on cars. He incorporates in his format Faux concepts, Glass, Portraiture, 3 Dimensional Animation and Illustration also not to mention even signage concepts. David has airbrushed t-shirts in dance clubs for many years, had his own art department in a very popular retail chain, taught for General Motors, Ivy Tech State College and even been hired as a muralist for a very popular company in California and Florida. Every since David has began his teachings, he has always had a fire in his heart to get people to change the way that they think about airbrushing, and feels that through his efforts, he will eventually galvanize a sense of appropriation for the fine arts community and artisans alike. David's road toward success in airbrush continues with the grace of God, as he constantly sees new and promising roads and opportunitys on many diverse substrates and mixed mediums.
