Colorado native Tony Achilles and his awesome fascination with human skin

You can find art all over town -- not just on gallery walls. In this series, we'll be looking at some of the local artists who serve up their work in coffeehouses and other non-gallery businesses around town.

After spending much of his early career doing commercial art, Tony Achilles realized he was ready to dive into studio art headfirst. Right now, he's focusing his efforts primarily on the human form -- and despite his awesome fascination with a certain medium, his work is much more than skin-deep.
