Screen Shot 2013-06-02 at 12.08.30 PM Honestly, I feel like I’ve wasted most of my life not knowing that this guy’s art existed.

This guy, is Eyvind Earle.

I’ve never encountered an artist who’s work makes me want so much. I just want all of it.
 
 
MINE. GIMME.
 
 

Disney

Eyvind Earle was a long-time Disney concept & background painter, and brought his unique perspective to such works as Beauty & the Beast and Peter Pan.

It’s one of the things I’ve always loved about Disney and Looney Tunes – the flavour of background art that was representative of the art aesthetics and movements at the time.
 
 

Wow…

Seriously – look at this stuff.

The negative painting… *sigh*.

So good.

Are you kidding me?

This doesn’t even scratch the surface of what he’s created in his lifetime.

No doubt Silvia is influencing a whole generation of painters to flow, splash, puddle and drip their way to beauty.

Cynthia Liu ~ Feature Friday Artist

Today’s Feature Friday artist is the unbeatable Kelly McKernan. Portraits and hair and emo and love it colour. Meowr.

Stephanie is a photographer, videographer and storyteller, capturing and sharing conversation starters about the more difficult topics that need to be had today around the intersections of race, gender and class.

We first “met” a couple years ago when she hired me for biz coaching for her fine art business. She loved me and my vibe and thought I was awesome. (Thanks Kim!)

She contacted me a month ago to partner as her retail agent.

Kim wanted to expand into more products and an online retail platform, but she absolutely wasn’t interested in setting up any of that stuff herself. She thought of me as the perfect person to manage and market that part of the business. (Totally true.)

Today I look at Maria Stezhko or CM Watercolor and review her online activity to see if we can glean any useful tips for our art businesses.
