To you.... good day,
I'm Steve McKim, a self taught graphic artist who started out to improve graphics available to the Masonic Fraternity using Painter 1.0 if I remember correctly..... and then 3D entered my world. I started with Poser, loved the results....disliked the slow rendering process.... came across DAZ Studio.... and that is where I've made my niche since. During the daylight hours I'm an Assembly Technician building 1500 to 4000 hp diesel and gas engines here at the Caterpillar Plant in Lafayette, Indiana. After crankin wrenches, reading blueprints and rattlin' my wee brain loose with impact tools?.....creating art on me computer is a nice way to wind down.... now my wife may have a different description of my idle time... but?... ahh... she loves me and I her with all my heart. Grew up on a farm, graduated in the top ten percent of my high school class, attended Purdue University taking Electrical Engineering, concrete laborer, machine operator, welder, truck driver, hod carrier, carpenter, play'd violin, been in auto and truck parts sales (sales and management), distibutor for MAC Tools for a time, been with Caterpillar for the last 17 years.... life has been good! Joined the Masonic Fraternity in 1980, knighted a Knights Templar in 1998 and knighted a Prince of the White Rose in 2005. Now?.... work, art and ride my harley.... when I'm not snuggling my beautiful Lady (wife of 38 yrs).
For now... I bid thee adieu,
Stephen A. McKim, PM aka The Masonic Knight
