As an illustrator, Weathers became familiar with advertising and publishing, which earned him executive positions in marketing at various companies in Birmingham. Eventually he combined his artistic knowledge with his marketing skills while continuing his career in graphic design and commercial art. Weathers has been a professional artist for over 40 years, and this has allowed him to, not only witness, but participate in the growth of the now indispensable field of computer graphics. Throughout the development of his career, Weathers has maintained a strong interest in his studio practice, often encouraging his public and private interests to influence one another. Indeed, because of his extensive experience with photography, design, and painting he is able to incorporate each discipline seamlessly into his fine art.
