My name is Charles Sutton.
By day I am a mild mannered intellectual property attorney.
I have been making art for about 12 years, and out of that I have been learning digital
media for about three. I have mostly been interested in fine art, although I do all kinds
of stuff ranging from minimalist abstractions to representational landscape and figurative
drawings. I have a couple of print illustrative publication credits and a large number of
juried shows I have been in. I am a former President of one non-profit art gallery and a
former treasurer of another. I am a current co-chair of the annual California State Bar
Association Bench and Bar Art Exhibition.
I have a little bit of experience at making small icons and quite a bit of experience
making what one might call webcomic type material to go along with the minimalist
abstraction experience that might come in handy in the area of wall papers or
I mostly work in the GIMP or traditional media, though I have Inkscape and Blender
available to me as well as some proprietary stuff like TurboCAD, Photoshop Elements 3 and
I think that's about it in a nutshell. I guess I can help some if esoteric legal
issues come up like you recently seem to have discussed in the area of logos in
With Windows Live, you can organize, edit, and share your photos.
