Stop by Bonfire Coffee on Main Street in Carbondale to see paintings by Hone Williams now through December. Hone studied oil painting and graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in coordination with the Grad. School of Fine Arts at the University of PA. After painting commissioned portraits for several years, he became involved with sound as an expressive medium. To support that interest, he freelanced for 12 years as a location sound engineer in the film industry. Traveled the world on hundreds of jobs and collected thousands of sound effects for his personal library/palette of sounds with which he produced sound shows several times a year. In the early 80s he turned to computers to get a better handle on his library of sound and became so involved with the computers and programming, he retired from the sound business and became a freelance computer programmer. In the early 90s when software programs began showing serious promise as creative tools or art, he shifted from computer programming to freelance digital illustration. In 2000 he became a full time commercial illustrator. Then in November 2008, he traveled full circle and began oil painting again. HonePie.com
