THE END OF 2019

We've come to the end of another year.

My sincere thanks to all of you for your interesting comments and suggestions throughout the year, especially for those insults intended to shake me out of my reveries. You've broadened my experience and sharpened my vocabulary, and I appreciate it. 




Here's wishing you a joyful 2020!

Happy new year David. This comment section always has the smartest, most honest debates about art on the internet. No bullshit here. That's why I'll come back to your interesting blog next year.

I'm glad you've returned to posting good drawings of butts for the year end. Last year I thought you turned all PC.

Your blog and the conversations held here have a big influence on how I view art and on how I practice it my self, it's a very special place. Thanks Mr. Apatoff and to the usual gang of (not so much) idiots that comment here, may the new year find you all in good health and excited to discuss the art of illustration.

David, all the best to you in the coming year. I always enjoy the art you share and your commentary on it, as well as the discussions in the comments.
I’d like to bring your attention to a new Smithsonian publication, “Visions of Lost Worlds- The Paleoart of Jay Matternes”. The beautifully produced book focuses on Matternes’ murals of prehistoric mammals (now removed and in storage, or lent to other institutions) and his designs for dinosaur dioramas. It includes not only photographs and details of the finished works but a huge selection of composition studies, bone drawings, muscle reconstructions and so forth. I’ve long admired Matternes, familiar to most for his reconstructions of early men and other creatures. I always wondered why there wasn’t a good book of his work available, and now there is! I sent Mr. Matternes a congratulatory email, and in his prompt and gracious reply he mentioned another book in the works, presenting other aspects of his art, to be published by the University of Indiana press, expected in late 2020.
Happy New Year!
