Artist Creates Masterpieces With Crayola Crayons

Forget the unique pencils, specially designed paint brushes or sticks of compressed charcoal found in art supply stores. A simple box of Crayola crayons and some paper is all Marco needs to create fine art that is sometimes mistaken for photography.

Even though he never meant coloring to be a way to make a living, Marco has spent more of his life drawing fine art with crayons than he did working with air traffic control in Hawaii before his retirement in 1973.

Marco has drawn everything from animals to landscapes to seascapes to people. Portraits are his favorite, even though he had trouble creating realistic skin tones when he first started learning.
