Sometimes my jaw drops…
Contributed by David Macy, Illustrator Sr. Product Manager Manager
… when I see artwork that I haven’t seen before. It may be the skill, the subject matter, or the medium. I especially love when I see artists using a tool or medium in ways that seem to defy common notions of the how it should behave. A beautiful example is multi-disciplinary artist Greg Geisler.
You may have seen his vector style animation work in A Scanner Darkly, but check out some of the Illustrator work in the Art section on raytracer.com – yes, those incredible and sometimes haunting watercolor, pen & ink and pastel style drawings are done in Illustrator. Looking at some of Greg’s paintings, it was no surprise to find out that he shared my love of Francis Bacon.
