Born in rural Surrey in 1946 to an English mother and Austrian father, Terry Pastor's earliest memories are of filling drawing books, from as early as three or four years old. A childhood love of Sci-Fi and Dan Dare s space adventures was followed by an interest in the full page adverts he found within the pages of the American National Geographic magazine, sourced through friends of his parents. The American car styling, with huge tail fins and chrome everywhere, was an exotic sight for an 8 year old growing up in the UK. As the Rock & Roll era dawned, Pastor already had a well-developed aesthetic and was ready to become part of it.
At age 15 Pastor left school and worked for three years in a commercial art studio in Fleet Street, London where he discovered and mastered the use of the airbrush. This discovery would prove to be of great significance as the airbrush became a signature of his style.
