MORE IMPORTANTLY-- there is this artist named Tommy Kane and I am infatuated with his illustrations right now. I love this kind of style, and his use of text is fantastic-- in this particular image he's talking about his relationship with his art in that moment-- so personal and nonchalant. Love it.
I have looked at every image on his site-- PLEASE check out the News Events, at least.
I have to admit, I would never have the patience to draw like he does, it would take about 8 years per drawing for some of them. The detail is insane! And it sounds like such an experience to draw places and objects from life, with people stopping to look and talk to him, and getting to travel all over the place… So much more interesting than photographs. Yes.
