The nickname comes from my scout troop. I'm a scoutmaster for a troop of Boy Scouts. I'm not the oldest of the scout leaders, but I have the most gray hair, hence the nickname. My youngest son, one of my scouts, insisted I use that nickname here.
I've done art and leatherwork for as long as I can remember. In college I majored in art with a computer science minor. I had the idea of doing computer animation. But once out of college I found out the reality, art doesn't pay much and I had student loans to pay. So for the past 20 years I've been working in the computer field.
A few years ago I determined to get back into my art work. I went to a local art festival where I saw someone demonstrating a high speed air drill doing wood carving. I was hooked. I hung around his booth for some time and talked him into letting me try out his drill. It was amazing, it seemed to combine drawing and leatherwork. It wasn't long until I had purchased one of my own and began doing low relief carvings. From there I've expanded to do some 3D carvings and recently even tried my hand at some chainsaw carving. Since finding LJ's I've been inspired to expand my wood working skills and try even more.
