About Dale Jackson

Hello, and welcome to my art gallery.

If you'd like to follow some progress on my artwork, please see my blog at: StratoArt Blog

My name is Dale Jackson. I am a traditional as well as digital artist. I have been drawing and painting with pencils, colored pencils, acrylics and pen & ink for over 30 years. With regard to digital art I started that in the mid 1980's with the Commodore 64, and this field has certainly come a long way in the last 30+ years. I love both traditional and digital media.

During the late 80's and early 90's I worked as an an apprentice for a duo-color print shop with a graphic design addition. I was also a photographer using a Pentax K-1000 manual camera. I developed my own b/w photography as well as prepare plates for the press. I also did layout and editor work the old fashioned way using grid-paper layouts and rubber cement which when finished and proofed, we sent to another full color printer. This was pre-digital days and we just started getting into Photoshop in the early 90's.

Today I produce original digital works of art as well as digitally enhanced pieces where I transform photography into paintings. I love to digitally paint aircraft, landscapes, seascapes and many other subjects as well. I also produce acrylic and oil paintings, photographed or scanned in as prints. In addition, I draw with traditional pencils and with pen & ink and I even do some technical illustration.

I've always had a love for aviation. I grew up around planes on USAF bases and often spent afternoons with my sketch book drawing them. When I was out of college I entered the USAF and was a crew chief on the KC-135. I'm particularly fond of military aviation, historical and modern. For me, drawing and painting aviation art is a burst of nostalgia and a history lesson. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to do some 'nose art' on various USAF aircraft.

I'm currently working on a drawing of the USAF O-2A Cessna Skymaster. My father, who served in the USAF until retirement worked on these observation aircraft in the 1970's at Wheeler Field, Hawaii.
