Graphic Guitars: Fine Art Guitar Paintings by Paul Chase

What happens when an accomplished painter becomes obsessed with guitars? Looking at the work of Paul Chase answers that question...

Artist, designer, guitarist Paul Chase is a freelance illustrator and commercial art instructor, who lives in Apple River, Illinois. Paul began his art career in grade school by making t-shirt designs for other students with permanent markers. He earned his bachelors degree in art, a Masters in Communication, and is now teaching in a Vocational Technical Center.
