Airbrush Action

Since 1985 Airbrush Action has been teaching artists how to satisfy clients that go in for the Kenny Powers aesthetic. This fine magazine includes tips, tricks, step-by-step how-to’s, competitions, and interviews with airbrush artists. Seemingly every variety of airbrushed material is covered: t-shirts, cars, trucks, buses, helicopters, giant lobster statues, magazine ads, snowmobiles, pre-photoshop photo retouching, medical illustration, toy packaging graphics, fake marble walls, leotards, pleather jackets, bowling pins, bicycles, caricatures, fingernails, hair, prosthetic puppets, and fine art paintings.

At the Synapse, a sudden chemical invasion. Life Oct. 22, 1971. "This painting, which is based on the actual specimen..." depicts how a signal gets from one neuron to another. "Here an axon (the big horizontal shape) forms two synapses, the first with a dendrite offshoot (vertical trunk on the left) and the other with the dendrite itself (right)."
