Oh Snap!




















(thanks Kyle)

Hey ladies and gents. Lately, I've really been cranking long hours on a project, so to keep the mojo fresh I look to inspiration periodically. Here's four incredibly masterful artists I've been scoping. If my research is correct they are all still alive, and most still working.

It's interesting to consider their influences. Of course this is all speculative, but it seems Sergio is very influenced by Mark English, and Pablo with Brad Holland. I'm not sure how their careers overlap, but I see a lot of Fawcett in Jose's work.

Hope these provide some inspiration with the end of the year deadlines. Happy Holidays!

cheers

Digging some of these images, always interesting to see what artists are thrown into the mental pot. I also have gotten the impression ( looking at your new work from your older stuff) that you are finding your own path or "style".
