Kevin Dellinger was born in Santa Maria, California November 22nd, 1972. He was always known for his art and music. While attending High School his interest in Art peaked.

After graduating High school, Kevin attended Virginia Western Community College. He majored in Graphic Design. He learned about commercial art, design, and Art History. To further grow in his potential, Kevin Dellinger decided to transfer to Radford University for his second year. Radford University is located in Radford, Virginia. Kevin attended many classes ranging from oil painting, watercolor, ceramics, drawing, and Art History. Kevin Dellinger graduated from Radford University May 1996.

The style of Kevin Dellinger is unique. There is a realism approach combined with other media to enhance the visual appearance of his work. Kevin Dellinger is not shy of combining mediums to achieve his goals. He feels comfortable with Black and White. However, every now and then will pursue color through colored pencils and watercolor. Being a mixed media traditional artist, mediums used are watercolor, colored pencils, pencils, and ink.

Orange Surprise
Here is yet another still life. This time it is oranges. I used watercolor pens with ink on medium weight paper. Dimensions 6 x 8. In the future, when I start my art printing business, this will be printed on 8 x 10 archival paper with a white border. This still life will be part of that inventory.
Apple Surprise
This drawing was created using watercolor pens. I have to say I enjoyed this better than using colored pencils. It was almost like creating a painting more than a drawing. I have mixed some ink with the watercolors. The artwork still life was drawn on medium weight 6 x 9 paper.
Noir Without a Care
Black and white Noir drawing by Kevin Dellinger. I used ink pen on Strathmore Mixed Media 400 Series 6 x 8 paper. It took me two hours to draw. I like the 1940s era. Sometimes I get in the mood
to draw some Film Noir.
1947 Street Scene
Welcome to the 1940s. Specifically this is a drawing depicting 1947. This is a downtown scene with busy traffic. People are walking. Pencil and ink defines the shadow play in this somewhat realistic style artwork. The main focus is to capture the style, mood, and cool hip vibe of the 1940s. Times were different back then. Notice the style of clothing. I had the freedom to display text of my choosing in this piece. Overall, it defined itself. Thanks for viewing.
52nd Street
Welcome to "52nd Street." It is the 1940s. It is not realism. It is surrealism in its own street scene style. I captured the 1940s time period quite well. The artwork was created with pencil and ink on medium weight 70 lb. paper. The lighting insisted more gradient on the right side. There is more ink on the left. The main focus is the car on the lower right. It pops out to get your attention. The other cars parked follow your view point down the street. Thank you for viewing "52nd Street" by Kevin Dellinger.
Wow. I finally dusted off my pencils and pens. I am drawing again. It feels good. Inspiration comes and goes. It is so unpredictable. I always go by mood. If I am not writing or composing music, I am drawing. If I am not drawing, I am writing. The cycle repeats all over again. It is good to be back.
