Holy shit, we are already at day 300! Still lots of cool stuff to come, don't worry!
Today's artist was suggested to me by a non-artist friend a couple of days ago. I hadn't heard of him before, but man, I am BLOWN AWAY. Jakub seems to have my same love of quiet moments, and mash-ups, and the feeling of the uncanny. On top of that, such a loose digital painter!
Today's artist is a character designer, passionate crusader for artists' rights, teacher, app developer and all-around good guy. I had coffee with Stephen on Friday (he was visiting Vancouver and made time to come talk to me!) and it was amazing. The two things I remember most - He asked FAR more questions than he spoke,and he was very passionate that EVERYONE in our industry should draw more. With that, I'm going to leave you...and go draw more!
Today's artist is the grandfather of American Illustration. He founded the Brandywine School, and trained some of the best illustrators of the 20th century....he also loved pirates. Most interesting to me are his sketches, and how unfinished they are. Not every drawing needs to be a masterpiece for you to use them to make amazing finished work!
Back with the French comic artists! I discovered today's artist via his Comix Buro sketchbook when I was in Paris in 2010....I really wish they'd translate his stuff to English...maybe I can find a scanlation fansite...
I first heard of today's artist from my friend Robin, who was reading Nate's comic "Nonplayer". He is now the art director for "Human Resources", which is a game of multiple apocalypses currently being kickstarted. It looks amazing, you should check it out and support it!
Today's artist has been my friend for several years now, and I'm super happy to share her work. Sometimes it feels like Sula and I share a brain....which may be a scary thing! I wish I shared her ability to paint people!
I met today's artist at Illustration Master Class as well, and I wish I'd talked to her earlier in the week, I feel like it was an opportunity lost that I only really connected with Rovina on the last couple of days.
Seth Rutledge is a visual developer and concept artist for the animation and video game industries, a photographer and a coffee snob living in Vancouver, British Columbia. 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.
