The Art Junction presents:
Don Moore always knew that he would be a military artist; just ask his former Willard High School art teacher, Mr. Charles Casto.
In 1968 Don left Willard, Ohio for the United States Marine Corps recruit depot at Parris Island, South Carolina. Upon completing boot camp and advanced combat training, he received the military occupation of illustrator/combat artist. Don served 16 ½ years in the Marine Corps before joining the Army in 1984 as an illustrator. Don retired from the military in 1989 with 22 ½ years of service.
Don’s military career was not limited to being an artist; he was also a drill instructor, presidential bodyguard, and non-commissioned officer in charge of graphic art centers and public affairs sections. These, as well as other military jobs, postings and travel experiences, helped Don build a variety of skills and life experiences. Wherever Don was stationed, he pursued his passion for art through college and correspondence courses. He also attended many workshops and institutes such as Dynamic Graphics.
Don has received many awards for his artistic skill, service and excellence. His most prized achievements are: induction into the Sgt. Audie Murphy Club, knighted into the Order of St. George, and commissioned an admiral in the Texas navy.
Owner and operator of Don Moore Illustration since 1989, Don has had a variety of notable clients, including authors John Carroll, Robert Utley, Steve Wise and Paul Hutton; United States presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush; and the magazines and corporations Armchair General Magazine, McDonnell Douglas Helicopter, the National Park Service, the Institute of Heraldry, and the History Channel.
