I often include artists in my blog for our own inspiration. Growing in art appreciation helps cultivate our artistic eye in our own work. It's subtle yet so effective. They often say, the more you read, the better you write. It's true of art too. The more you study, the better you become as an artist! And what a fun way to get there!
Here is an artist that I just was made aware of today on Facebook. Alexander Jansson from Sweden. LOVE him! He's kind of a Maggie Taylor/Tim Burton mix to me. Full of depth of color and whimsy. His illustrations are reminiscent of Winken, Blinken and Nod in a childhood fantasy way. Enjoy some of his images and if you would like to, check out his very creative website! http://www.alexanderjansson.com
