I actually had to check to make sure I hadn't posted today's artist already, as he is a huge inspiration for me. I love his cartooning, and the sense of fun that permeates his work. I love that even with the fun, there can be a darkness too :)
Today's artist draws some of the best women I've seen in comics. You may know of him from "Strangers in Paradise", but I tend to prefer his sci-fi series "Echo" or his current horror series "Rachel Rising." GREAT expressions, great "real" people drawing.
Continuing my "traditional painter who works currently in illustration" series with today's artist. Again, I got the opportunity to see his work at IlluxCon this year, and his colours blew me away. Some seriously good stuff.
Finally got to meet today's artist in person at IlluxCon. I've been following him for years, mostly because he's a kick-ass matte painter on top of an amazing illustrator and oil painter. I love his work, there is such a sense of scale and cinema to all his images.
Today's artist has some amazing animation work under his belt, and some AMAZING gesture drawings. I first heard his name via "Thought of You", but since then I've met him at CTN Expo and looked at his other stuff...stunning is the word that comes to mind.

Before he discovered illustration, he received a CSCI/Math degree from UNC-Charlotte, and has lived and worked all over the United States and Canada. He has run marathons, taught English in Japan, been CTO for a pharma marketing company and done fashion photography in NYC. Seth has two albums he wrote and played keyboards on, and he plays the theramin whenever he gets the chance. Seth spends so much time in coffee shops drawing that he is mentioned in online reviews. He would love a career drawing elves and goblins for a living.
