Graphic Illustrator and  Conceptual Artist  

Douglas E. Branstetter 

   I joined the US Navy in February of 1983 and served 4 years as an aircraft mechanic. After being honorably discharged I attended John A. Logan College in the spring of 1987 to study Computer-Aided Design and Drafting including course studies in tool design, mechanical design, architectural design, and industrial design. 

  After graduation in May of 1989, I was hired at Boeing Aerospace Co. where I created technical illustrations and documentation for service manuals. While in St. Louis I married the love of my life Susan and had 2 wonderful boys Jason and Andrew. 

  I later moved to Davenport IA in December 2008 and worked as a mechanical designer and later move to a technical illustration position creating illustrations for technical manuals. 

  In 2020 I obtain my Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design from Upper Iowa University. I recently moved to Colorado Springs and now work with a Government contractor as a 3D Graphics Programmer.
