Hello, I’m Don Veitch, I’ve been a commercial artist since 1995. I’ve worked on a wide range of Illustration, Design and Web Design projects with more than 70 clients.
I graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and have more than 16 years experience as an illustrator and designer. Specializing in editorial and book illustration, I utilizes both traditional or digital media.
I’m also a First Sergeant in the Massachusetts National Guard. My current assignment is as First Sergeant, Camp Edwards Training Site. I previously served as the Chief Public Affairs Noncommissioned Officer where I designed and am currently still the administrator of the Massachusetts National Guard’s website; www.ma.ng.mil.
Artist & Soldier don’t seem to go together. I’ve often heard that, now more so. I happen to do both; it seems a good fit for me. I have worked as a professional Artist since 1995, and a Soldier far longer than that. That I’m able to do both at the same time is probably what people seem to think is “odd.”
As an artist, I’m blessed to have the best job in the world. Don’t agree? How many times have you heard someone say, “I wish I couldn’t draw?”
As a soldier, I’ve had a good career and done some exciting stuff. I’ve been over the “pond” for a tour of duty in Iraq. Worked with some great people and seen some amazing places; Paraguay, Germany, Kyrgystan and Tajikistan to name a few.
