    Just curious–who’s your favorite artist? Who do you take inspiration from? I absolutely LOVE the work of Andy Goldsworthy–if you haven’t heard of him, look him up! It’s incredible! I’m more of a writer than an artist myself, but if I were an artist, I’d want to be one like him, whose art includes the natural world in everything.

    Absolutely, hands-down, my favorite is @mariposa because of reasons. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You should check out her art on the Story Embers blog!

    Ambiverted INFP. Scribbles all the words. Names the plant friends. Secretly Edna the Piguirrel.

    Sarah Baran

    Honestly? Marla Frazee. I know that may be a little weird, because she’s only a childrens’ book illustrator, but her work is so adorable and quirky. It makes me happy.

    @scribbles Thank you! (though I think you may be just the tiniest bit biased ๐Ÿ˜‹).

    I think my favorite artist is either Thomas Kinkade or Norman Rockwell (I really adore that 1950s Saturday Evening Post style ๐Ÿ™‚).

    I think dinosaurs are cooler than dragons. ๐Ÿฆ–

    Either Raphael or Rembrandt. Although I do have a special place in my heart for Rockwell. And no, I’m not intentionally choosing artists whose names all begin with ‘R’. ๐Ÿ˜›

    @dragongeek I’d have to say Van Gogh, although I like Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and De Goya as well. Actually, I like Ben McSweeney and Todd Lockwood as much as the true masters at times. Andy Goldsworthy seems like a pretty awesome artist and really original ๐Ÿ˜€ I like him

    Vincent Van Gogh and Caspar David Friedrich are on the top of my list!

    I love Monet, especially some of his cityscape-ish ones:) Durand, and many of the other Hudson River School painters are great too! Aedan Peterson, Joe Sutphin, and Garth Williams are also great.

    My friend SaynaSLuke on Devianart <3 (CAREFUL though that site’s kinda… gratuitous a lot of the time so if you look for her just type her name into the search and try to avoid the main feed. You can also visit redwall.wikia.com and look for her art there on her profile, though there’s not as much). She draws anthropromorhpic animals and her style is just really amazing.

    And then whoever it was who illustrated the Redwall picture books and cookbook. Those are so epic, man…

    hello. would you like to destroy some evil today?

    Jenna Terese

    @dragongeek oh my goodness yes @maripoa isย really goodย at what she does! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I also like Christopher Hart, who draws manga style. I don’t know a lot about him, I just have one of his manga drawing books.

    Vincent Van Gough was and is by far the greatest artist who ever lived. His work is beyond words. You look at his work and see life captured perfectly, and not just the sorrow, it’s easy to capture sorrow on canvass but to take the torture of your own miserable life and use it as a weapon to capture the joy and colour of life is something that had never been done so tastefully and will likely never be done again. Each brush stroke is emotion you can see the tender caress of some and attack of excitement in others and gentle blending of sadness and vibrant splashes of life. Colour holds the key to life and Vincent Van Gough held the key.

    @lillian-parks03 Whoa be careful. You might make the dude cry. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @lillian-parks03 Wow, I love your description of him!

    @lillian-parks03 Oh I feel a littleย embarrassedย  now. ๐Ÿ˜€ I thought that was a quote from this TV show. And so what I said before probably doesn’t make any sense to anyone. *blush* Well, uh nevermind! I really shouldn’t assume things. ๐Ÿ™‚
