Art Crush

I've always had the biggest crush on Richard Johnson's work!

In case you are not familiar with it, he is a master of color and light in my opinion. His settings are so theatrical, perspectives always interesting and characters incredibly appealing.

He happens to be a sweet guy too. I had the courage to email him when I was just starting out and he couldn't be nicer. You can tell what a sweet gentle soul he is just by looking at his work. This is another thing I love about this field. Style is always linked with personality, no doubt about that.

Hope you visit his website and admire his work and books. Breathtaking. :o)

Wow wow wow! I just drooled over his website. I've seen one or two of those books - but seeing all the work together is just awe-inspiring. Thanks, Ali!
