Don’t worry about a style. It will creep up on you and eventually you will have to undo it in order to go further. Be like a river and accept everything.A wonderful article: Gary Panter’s Drawing Tips (via the Drawn blog). Definitely worth a read for artists! (via ravenskar)
Great billboard. That looks like the scene from my 3rd grade lunch box!
Nov. 17, 1976: “Paul Chin paints billboards,” reads the article accompanying this photograph. “Every weekday morning, provided it is not raining, snowing or dangerously windy, the 5-feet 6-inch Mr. Chin, a native of Hong Kong, climbs to the roofs of buildings and into his narrow studio — a scaffold.” Mr. Chin, the art director for Artkraft Strauss, created this King Kong billboard towering over Midtown Manhattan.
