Katmomma made the astute Norman Rockwell connection. Perhaps you could work some of Rockwell's classics into your portfolio. Would love to see your "loopy" twist on his self portrait, for example. I personally see a touch of Big Daddy Roth meets Frank Frazetta. Big fan. Love it all.
All very flattering comparisons there Love both Rockwells technique and sense of narrative - and his self portrait is such an iconic image.. who knows, one day I may have a play in that particular sandpit. Thanks for checking out my work... and huge apologies for such a tardy reply... somehow your comment got lost in a sea of stuff in my inbox
reminds me ofthe late great kelly freas!please visit my gallery and give me your honest critique i am desperately trying to improve my stuff..blessings to you and yours -piece-out from portland oregon!!artcity usa!!
Everyone says the best way to improve your work is to practice practice practice - and they are pretty much right. Drawing everyday is what got my stuff going - I used to keep sketch books full of stuff I drew on the train, in meetings, anywhere I went. I work as an illustrator now, and I still see things I need to improve on, so I keep practicing!
sincere thanks and much admiration too you ! i really appreciate the time-out you took to comment That was very kind of you!! I work alot in public drawing caricatures so i work so fast..has been a struggle for me to slow down and really focus on taking the time needed..i see you spend days on your stuff that is what i plan on doing..im glad u appreciate my starvin and pimpchump piece its real popular..anyway thank you soooooo very much..and if you are ever in the portland oregon usa area feel free to stop by for my deluxe tour of the waterfalls art scene and wherever you would like to visit..it is the most beautiful place i have ever lived..kindest regards and deeeep admiration,Michael thomas Morley
definately a compliment..so sad when kelly died his wife had to put a call out to the arts community and sell off alot of his originals to pay burial costs..how could this be i thought..he was an amazing artist!
