Little Italian restaurant outside Detroit, MI
Thank you so much!! And *sigh* i have had some pretty nasty criticism in the past that i “jacked his style”, which is hard to take being an origanilist. I adore his work to a possibly unhealthy degree, and was initially drawn to it because i’ve always worked with botanical/biomorphic figures. To really emphasize the difference between our work, i did a study based on his “Blu II” post ( bellow). And it was REALLY hard for me not to draw the eyes, and patiently draw everything in black & sepia before coloring.
