Discoveries

Thought I would post about some new artist discoveries. Some are traditional. Others are digital. Both Karla and Audrey won me over with their strong sketch work. Jim Madsen infuses lots of  humor in his work. Corinne and Rie's lyrical lines are yummy. Rich Kelly's exaggerated style is so confident. Balanced distortion that works. Hope they engage you as well and you take a moment to check out the links.
Enjoy!

Wow! Such skill, such imagination! Thank you for this morning's inspiration--Hey!--How did it get to be so late already?!? Where did that last hour go!?!

I completely understand, Suzy. Looking at art can suck you in, can't it? I usually set my egg timer but mostly, I ignore it. Thanks for stopping by.

They're all wonderful, but I love that Rich Kelly "Hold Steady" in particular. I always enjoy seeing artists play with planes and dimension like that.

Karla Ortiz seems to have the world opening up in front of her, with recent work like her stunning-yet-restrained card art for "Teysa Karlov" really making a splash...

Thanks, Dave. Yeah, Rich's confident delivery of all that "play" is definitely awesome. I was able to meet Karla at SFAL and she is one of the nicest people and so surprised with the attention she is receiving. Her WIP of that card art on her blog is wonderful. Thanks for stopping by.

Wow. Just wow. I love great illustration. It gives me chills.

These are all new to me, and all inspirational. I have to say, the one that really grabs me is the b/w image by Rich Kelly of the men beating around the snow with their weapons, with that crow in the foreground. THAT is what I want to learn to do... that use of odd foreground things that act like a bit like a Greek chorus, commenting on the action. No, it's not just that, it's the whole evocative image, drawing the viewer into the mood of the story. That is illustration.

Thanks, Kim.

**I know Vicki...he makes it look effortless.,,all those factors work to bring in the whole scene.
