Howard Rogers grew up in sunny San Diego, California, far removed from the cowboy culture that would eventually play such a large role in his art career. After a stint in the Army, Rogers worked in the sign department of a grocery store. Early in his life, he was also a champion bicyclist and tried out for the Olympic team three times. After a racing accident ended his cycling career, he enrolled in the Art Center College of Design in California. After many years in illustration—one of his most recognizable pieces was the poster for the James Bond film Diamonds are Forever—Rogers started pursuing fine art, including his Western images, but also florals, sculpture and, something quite rare in the Western world, female nudes.
