All Weekend Long
Richard Markham has been airbrushing for 23 years. Completely self-taught, Richard started off with pencil sketching, cartooning, and eventually worked up to portraits and paintings. At 19 years old, Richard discovered the airbrush and has never turned back. His ability to produce high quality, detailed work in limited time has evolved into a desire to teach others. Richard has created his own system and techniques to teach airbrushing to those who proclaim they "can’t even draw a stick figure".
Throughout his career, Richard Markham has always explored his options as an airbrush artist. Some of his accomplishments include teaching for several Technical Colleges, subcontracting for Six Flags New England, owning and operating his own chain of mall airbrush stores, featured articles in numerous magazines, and winning dozens of awards at car & truck shows. In recent years, Richard has been gaining recognition for his live airbrush demonstrations that he performs at car shows and high schools across the United States.
His latest endeavor “Airbrush Junction” is a complete airbrush service store located at the Eastfield Mall in Springfield MA. With a newly assembled team of some of the best airbrush artists in New England they offer all manner of airbrush art to include complete airbrush training classes, full line of supplies and paint, airbrush birthday parties, temporary tattoos and more. Richard and the rest of the team can be contacted at the store on the web at “AirbrushJunction.com”
