THE END OF 2016

I love the work of Denis Zilber.  His drawing ability, vivid imagination and
fun attitude make him one of my favorite digital illustrators.


Wishing you all a happy 2017, one that I hope will generate a little more love than what we experienced in 2016.

Thanks to all of you for your interesting comments and suggestions throughout the year.  You have broadened my experience and sharpened my vocabulary, and I appreciate it.

David, do you think your "end" series is a little sexist?

David Apatoff said...

Meera-- Many thanx for visiting. I hope you have a great new year.

Tom-- Thanks for your participation. I look forward to hearing what you have to say in 2017.

JSL/ Anonymous-- Yes, I love those shoes, and the cake is perfect too. I like the way Zilber adds those little touches, such as the draped tie.

David Apatoff said...

Li-An-- Yes, there seems to be no shortage of "end" pictures to choose from but I especially like this one. Thanks for your comments this year.

Paul Sullivan-- Happy New Year to you as well, Paul. I've enjoyed your participation and I hope you have a terrific 2017.

Aleš-- and thank you for contributing the same. It has been a fun year.

Anonymous-- If you check, you'll see that my "end" series has included the well drawn butts of horses, pixies and boys as well as women (check out the great Bellows drawing I used at the end of 2008). I've been very good about that (and it hasn't been easy).

Rigadoon23-- Thanks, and same to you.

Art Kiev-- Well, some of life is, at least, and that's somehow enough to see us from year to year.

David Apatoff said...

Tina Price--Thanks so much and-- assuming you are THE Tina Price-- thanks so much for your great CTN Expo event which, I discovered, is always a great opportunity for talented people in this field to get together. I missed Denis Zilber there in 2016 but one of my ambitions for 2017 is to make it back to LA again. Happy new year to you and yours.
