Pascal Campion

Stand up and take notice. Pascal's work is top notch. He's somehow able to translate the loose gestural quality of a great cartoonist like Bill Watterson, into color and shape driven illustrations and paintings. Flat, but organic. Striking composition, too. His character design is fresh, and his color design (contrast in value, limited palette) is something to study, for sure. Run on over to his blog. You won't be sorry :)

AND he is an amazing flash animator as well! Truly someone to be inspired by.

What great paintings!
I like to play this game I'm dubbing "who might this artist have been inspired by?"
Mary Blair?
The colors surely look Bill Waterson-esque.
I love the limited palette, it's worth exploring!

(^_^) Wow...
Thank you so much for the (very) kind words. Renee emailed me about this and I feel very very complimented.
Thank you.
