It might be enough to be recognized in any one of these arenas, but Lewis now adds author to the list, having over 50 years of advancing his way through the ranks of the creative industry. He now assembles his experiences in a single historic story, to share with the reader, “the art that affected my life and the life that affected my art,” a true adventure cover to cover.
