Top 3 @rtists..::..

nrockwell7pmax1echerPeter Max, M.C.Escher, and Norman Rockwell are probably the artists most responsible for my style. And M.C. Escher is a pencil artist extraordinaire – one I would emulate if I had all the time in the world to sketch – I admire the mind play of his work and the tricks he dose with his lines.

One of the things I severely lack as an artist is the ability to spend a long time on a piece of artwork. I am, for all intents and purposes, kind of a “quick sketch artist”. I like to get it down and move on to the next creative thought bubble. So I admire those artists who do things I would like to do but probably never will because of lack of time or patience – one of those things being spending years on one piece of work!

Rockwell is one of my favorite artist of all times. I remember seeing his art as a child and being impressed by its simplicity, yet complexity (am I making sense?). Anyhow it was not until I was an adult that I realized his cultural relevance and awareness. He captured so many emotions and was actually measuring the pulse of the nation during different eras (the picture of Ruby Bridges being escorted comes to mind). I miss him and wonder what he would be drawing today
