Making the nightly news (but in a good way...) UPDATED!

Recently I was honored to be a part of an ABC News interview for Persons of the Week, which focused on four Marine Combat Artists, two of us still working, and two retired. CWO2 Mike Fay, retired combat artist Charles Grow, Col. Charles Waterhouse (retired combat artist and the former Artist in Residence of the Marine Corps), and myself.

We went up to Col. Waterhouse's studio and museum in Toms River NJ. He has a great collection of works in his museum- from an art career that has spanned over 40 years, and a Marine Corps career that dates back to WWII (see his bio).

We sat and talked about what it was to be a Marine Combat Artist, and they filmed us and used our work for the piece, which aired tonight, 7 September, on World News with Charles Gibson.

It's currently on their website for this week-- check it out if you'd like to see us gab...
