We had the good fortune of connecting with Ron Husband and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ron, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Executing the fundamentals.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have been blessed with the talent of art and recognized it early in life. I can’t say I’m that much different from others, I’ve had opportunities in quick sketching, illustration and animation, and in each area I was prepared to advance. Where I am today is primarily because I was able to effectively see the overlap in all three disciplines mentioned above.
The aspect of my artwork that most excites me is seeing how my art affects the emotions of others.
My career in art was born out of my seeking a way to be more creative and though there were obstacles along the way, discouragement was never an issue.
When challenges arose, I learned to do the best I could, with what I had, where I was.
Lessons learned along the way are to be prepared (schooling, life lessons, sound advice) and adaptable.
It is not so important that people know what I have accomplished, but they look inside themselves to discover what they have to offer.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Go to church and worship our Lord, have home cooked meals where we can talk and catch up on our lives, visit some friends we have in common or have those friends over for a bar-b-que, visit some place they haven’t seen before (amusement park, museum, beach etc.)

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My wife of forty nine years, LaVonne.
