In the spirit of the season
I kvetch a lot about my desire to see more of my work in print and all that, but in the grand scheme of things, I have a lot of things to be really grateful for. One thing that I’ve been especially grateful for is the beauty of “The Inter-web”, and that it’s allowed me to come in contact and make friends with a whole host of people that share my sensibilty. I’ll try and post more about these folks in the coming weeks; one of these people is Colin White.
I’ve been wanted to blog on Colin for a while, because I consider link love on this blog to be one of the sincerest forms of flattery, and I really admire what Colin does. Not only does he have a great eye for presenting specific pieces of scenes that set a tone (admittedly the type of stuff I tried to do in 365), but he’s also got a simplicity of line that I wish I could capture: he doesn’t obsess over tiny details, and his gesture-like work is as strong and evocative as some of the most manically detailed stuff I’ve seen.
Look for something Colin and I will be collaborating on some time this next year. Yeah!
