I stumbled across Michal’s watercolours on deviantArt some time ago. I find my way back to his site every few weeks to bask in the glory of his colour.

I love how this guy paints. I love the colour washes, the flow, the lost edges and the light in his work. I love the layers and the depth to his glazes.

Michal Orlowski inspires me to be a better watercolour painter. To take risks with colour and value and put more contrast in my work.


I love it like I love a good Electrical Storm.

I have the whole set of Strangers in Paradise tpb collection. It was a good story, sure… but I also kept coming back for Terry Moore’s drawing and clean, dynamic line style. I’ve had more than a couple people say that my comics remind them of Terry Moore. I don’t agree… but it still gives […]

This is the first in a 4 part Imaginism Studios Feature Friday series. Next up is Kei Acedera. Bobby Chiu people. Character concept on Alice in Wonderland, Disney, Warner Brothers, Dreamworks, Sony…. I can’t believe I haven’t featured him before now. I guess because he’s doing so much and everywhere that I thought you’d all […]

Madéleine Flores people. I met Madéleine on ‘teh interwebz’ through comic friends and then in real life when we were both exhibiting at SPX in 2011. I’ve always loved her work, and lately she’s just taken off in a big way. Last month Madéleine moved to LA to make comics for Nickelodeon. WUT!! Madéleine, in […]

I found Laurie Near during a search for “Canadian Artists” while preparing art projects for primary grades. How lucky for me. Laurie’s work gives me the feels and they make me want to buy her stuff. Lucky for her. Bad news for me since her work is priced between $300 – $3500… and most of […]

Princess M. submitted her art to me months ago and I’ve finally got some room to start posting more Feature Friday Artists. If you’re interested in featuring your work on The Artist as Entrepreneur (TAAE), check out the Feature Friday Artist page and submit your deets and photos. (Princess M – thanks for being so […]

Today’s Feature Friday artist is Jennifer Gillooly Cahoon. I don’t remember how I stumbled upon Jennifer’s paintings – it was somewhere on Facebook, but I was immediately riveted. Beautifully rendered portraits of the dead, filled with life and energy. This is Jennifer’s “Day of the Dead” series. Dia de los Muertos. (Bonus points awarded to […]

Carrying on with our Imaginism Studios series – we’ve got… Peter Chan! If I’m not mistaken (and please interwebz – let me know if this isn’t correct), I believe Peter Chan hooked up with Imaginism Studios through a co-op placement while Peter was attending Sheridan.

This is the second of the 4 part Imaginism Studios Feature Friday series. Click here for Bobby Chiu. Next up is Peter Chan. Kei Acedera is the more whimsical artist at Imaginism Studios. I love her work… Actually, I prefer her art to Bobby’s. (shhhh – don’t tell) Everything she creates is so SQUEEE. I […]
