A few years ago I had the pleasure of working with a designer/illustrator/artist when I worked at Ingram Book Company in La Vergne Tennessee. His name is Andy Perez and he works mostly in collage. We have both moved on since those days at the ‘ol Ingramachine, I to Griffin Technology and he to The Actor’s Theatre of Louisville. He’s a great illustrator and all around good egg and I wanted to just give him a little love by posting one of his recent paintings on my ever so popular blog (maybe someday…). You can visit his web site here and I encourage you to follow him via facebook. I LOVE the brush strokes and vivid reds of this piece. Speaking of “reds”, there are some subtle variations going on here that are quite sophisticated and beautiful. Check it out.
