Digital Airbrush Artist Beats Creative Limitations with a GX-24 Vinyl Cutter
Mike Learn Airbrush & Design | Boulder Co, Colorado
Mike Learn, of Mike Learn Airbrush & Design, knows airbrushing. In addition to winning the prestigious V-Twin Painter of the Year Award, Learn has painted Kendall Johnson’s Easyrider Centerfold Tour bike, the JNC Shootout bike, Death Valley Choppers’ Las Vegas bike and Anna Nicole’s TrimSpa bike, just to name a few. The airbrushing veteran has even created many fine-art pieces, vehicle graphics and album covers, including the latest Megadeth release, The System Has Failed.
“My Roland GX-24 digital cutter lets me exceed those limitations and do things technically that I just could not do otherwise. The result is more creativity and faster production.”
“When thinking creatively, airbrush artists are often blocked by their own abilities,” said Learn. “My Roland GX-24 digital cutter lets me exceed those limitations and do things technically that I just could not do otherwise. The result is more creativity and faster production.”
When designing extremely complex art, the GX-24 lets Learn concentrate on the art without worrying about how he’s going to produce it. The cutter takes care of the most intricate lines in a matter of minutes. While the machine doing all the tedious cutting, Learn can spend much more time airbrushing. It enables him to focus more on the creative side of being an airbrush artist.
Jobs that normally would take four hours to cut by hand take just 30 minutes with the Roland cutter. Rather than charging customers for four hours of mundane cutting, he can increase the quality of his work by spending more time airbrushing. With hours of airbrushing, the job comes out with much more pizzazz.
“The Roland cutter has been like Superman,” said Learn. “From the day the device arrived, it interfaced perfectly with CorelDraw®, which saved me from having to buy a thousand dollar design program. I can easily scale a design perfectly and cut it out again. It saves me lots of time and stress.”
