I am curious who are some the biggest inspirations to people who read this blog.
While it is hard to narrow it down to one, I will start off and say Francisco Goya is one of my favorite artists of all time.
Why? I love that he was basically a working illustrator who secretly did a ton of subversive, personal art about the hypocracy he saw around him (but kept it secret so not to upset the King and nobels who paid for his work). He had a varied and interesting range. From doing painted sketches and designs for tapestries to the "Disasters of War" series-what a facinating career!
Who are your favorites and biggest influences?
