The Chromatic Crow Gallery is an online presentation of my father's art.
This page explains...
John F. Miller
Before his retirement my father, John F. Miller (b.1928 Youngstown, Ohio, USA), had a long career as a creative person. He has done...
- Animation (cell work and stop motion)
- Commercial Illustration (for advertising)
- Interior Design
- Puppetry (design, construction, script writing, directing)
- Retail Display
- Silversmith Jewelry
- Studio Painting
- Theater (technical stage management, set design, lighting)
He also taught others so they could fulfill their goals in the visual arts. Notably he was at Cornish College of the Arts (Seattle, WA, USA) as a member of the Design Department for over 30 years. Since his retirement in 2011 he spends his time resting. While recently he has not taught or produced anything new, he has a good collection of creative works previously done.
Considering his creative works, whether it was designing a stage set, building a puppet or painting on canvas, it seems to me that my father desired to illustrate scenes from stories, showing characters, places and things, or just evoking moods and ideas. I used to watch him work and have fun, which I think is reflected in his pieces. My desire now is to share some of his work with the world - and with you.

John F Miller with son, Benjamin,
circa 1998 A.D.
I am Benjamin A. Miller (b.1960 in Detroit, Michigan, USA). For most of my life I've been a resident of Seattle, Washington, USA. Among my various activities, I do custom web sites under the business name BAM Works/Webcraft.
This web site I do for my father; I dedicate it to him. I present a selection of his art work in this web site. Starting with a dozen images in 2015, I will add a dozen more each new year. So please check back.
This site includes:
- Pictures - characters, places, things and entire scenes
- Designs - abstract images or patterns
- Puppets - currently shadow puppets
Please be aware that all the art here is protected by copyright. To remind you of this, a chromatic crow appears as you move your cursor over each image. If you want copies of any of these images, please buy prints.
Thank you for visiting.
The Print Shop
I have had an account at CafePress.com for years. I have decided to start offering prints through them. I like the idea of seeing my father's art on mugs, t-shirts, mouse pads, and other items there.
Currently at the CafePress Chromatic Crow Shop prints are available on the following:
- large framed prints
- unframed poster size prints
- large mugs
- dark T-shirts
- women's dark T-shirts
- men's V-neck T-shirts
I plan on adding additional items featuring my father's art, so please check back. If you wish a print on an particular item you don't see, please contact me and I'll see what I can do.
To reach the Print Shop site, click the link at the top of these pages. Also, below each image of my father's art in this site is a link which will take you to the page with that image's prints.
About the shop's web pages. The template with the CafePress shop is not as responsive to different screen widths as I have done with this site. Currently it is best to view the shop from a larger sized screen, like on a large tablet or desktop monitor. I am now working on the script to add to the template to make it (a bit more) responsive -- then you'll be able to visit the shop even from your cell phone without having to zoom or scroll (at lot). I will post an announcement when this adjustment is done.
