I was fortunate to see Victo Ngai speak at the ICON conference. Her work is jaw-dropping. Beautiful and complex. I want to immerse myself in one of these scenes (although I don't wish to be chased by the red monster-cat-thing). See her website here. I also found an interview about her process here.

I'll refrain from commenting on how long it's been since I last blogged (oh wait, I just did). I attended the ICON illustration conference this summer and was inspired by the many talented Artists out there, so I thought I'd share. I don't know the title of the above piece but it's by Esmé Shapiro. Find more of her amazing work here.

Hey, I'm back! I took a hiatus from blogging for a while but look, here I am. Oh joy. What inspired me to post, you may wonder... I took a trip to the Portland Art Museum yesterday and discovered yet another Artist I admire. This painting, "The River" by C.S. Price, I found especially beautiful. The flat reproduction doesn't do it justice, you really have to see the thick paint strokes to appreciate it but, hey, this is the best I can do on a blog. I like his semi-abstract style and active paint strokes. Apparently C.S. Price used to make tiny models of his subjects (animals, houses, etc.) to get a feel for the angles and planes of each object before he would draw. His tiny models were also on display. Go see his work if you're in Portland!
