The Family History Files of Dalton Ray Phillips







I don't claim to be an artist but I do like to draw. I do a lot of it now that I am retired. I am pretty much home bound and drawing is relaxing for me. I do all of my drawing with a mechanical pencil loaded with 2B leads. PLAIN AND SIMPLE - THAT IS MY WAY. 

At last count, I had almost 400 sketches stashed away in my digital achieves. Some good, some bad, most about average

- all done by me. I typically turn out 2 or 3 new sketches every day. 

I will refresh this page often with new drawings.

If you have comments, suggestions or criticism just send me an email.

A person complained about this drawing, calling it "white supremist hate material". I don't think I made any comments that glorifies the Wehrmacht or the Nazis. If I did, I would apologize for it.  I make no apologies for drawing this picture. I did not create the Wehrmacht. However, it did exist and I have my rights to free expression. Whether we like it or not, history shows that the military forces put on the field by the Germany's Third Reich were some of the finest the world has ever known. That includes the Wehrmacht of the World War Two era. It is a credit to the Armed Forces of the allies that we were able to win the war.
