Welcome to Fiddler's Green Studio
Western Art and Photography
Suberba est mendicatum tolatum quod primus permisus mendicatum
||Jim Hatzell is a graduate of the American
Academy of Art in his native Chicago, Illinois (he has a degree in
Advertising & Design/Illustration). He has a background in acrylic,
watercolor and pen-n-ink illustration, but over the last several years
has been concentrating on Western Photography.
Jim has a strong background in history, which comes in handy for his
artwork, not to mention the 50 or more films he has been a part of.
"Dances with Wolves", "Far and Away",
"Gettysburg", "Geronimo", "Crazy Horse",
"Rough Riders", "Ride with the Devil",
"Skins", and most recently "Hidalgo". Also look for an
upcoming episode of "Investigating History: The Mystery of Crazy
Horse" coming to the History Channel in early 2005.
A South Dakota resident since 1981, Jim has volunteered as an art teacher at
The Garfield Art School as well as many other community programs. He spent two
summers working as a Park Ranger/Historic Interpreter at the Little Big Horn
Battlefield National Monument. He is currently working as a stagehand at the
Civic Center in Rapid City and also working as technical advisor on several
upcoming film projects.
I also have thousands of photos published at MySpace.
