|Denny Karchner's "Western Artwork" and "Graphic Art" was spawned from a deep passion for the love of a pencil and paint at a very young age. He has been producing "pencils" since the tender age of three-years-old and after a 34-year hiatus, has returned to paints. Here, you will find the newest in a series in oils, acrylics and pencils. It is Denny's tightest and most intense works ever."
Denny's passion and love for "pencil and paints" are gaining ...more him increased notoriety among museums and private collectors. Over the last few years, Denny has worked closely with the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody and has had art included in their Annual Art Auctions. Denny had three pieces accepted into the prestigious "Booth Western Art Museum" for their permanent private collection. Those pieces are "Horse Capture," "Chief Tosh~A~Wah" and "Jim Dunham." Just recently, the family of the late, great Curt Gowdy commissioned Denny to paint his portrait. Lastly, Denny has just been hired by the Rooney family, owners of the 2008 NFL Superbowl Champions Pittsburgh Steelers to paint many of the old Steelers from the 1970's Super Bowl Teams. What an honor for a "Lifetime Fan" and former resident of "The Steel City."
"Buffalo Graphics," my freelance company is devoted to my "graphic work" exclusively. All pieces of work were produced on a MAC or PC. The programs used to produce this art are CorelDRAW, Adobe Illustrator and mostly Adobe PhotoShop. Now a days I produce most of my work on a MAC Pro. Since 1975 I have worked for numerous large screen print companies producing “high-end” T-shirt art. I started with my own company in Central Pennsylvania, “Design To Print.” I have worked for companies like “Knights Apparel” in S.C. producing art for NCAA, NBA, NHL and the Dallas Cowboys. I have worked for “VF Imagewear”(Vanity Fair) in Tampa, FL producing T-shirt art for the likes of NASCAR, MLB, NFL and lastly, Harley-Davidson.
I now work for companies on a “freelance” basis. I find myself producing high-end T-shirt graphics for the Christian, Christian Bikers, Christian Rock, Postal workers, Firemen, EMS, Trucking and Hunting markets to name a few. less
