When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Martin WittFooth

Here's another artist/illustrator. But these are not merely well crafted illustrations. Mr. Wittfooth seems to be dealing with some pretty substantial themes. While he presents no artist statement on his website (www.martinwittfooth.com) what I see is a cast of almost mythic characters (all animals) playing out a drama in an ongoing apocalypse named mankind.
A large number of these pieces are from this year so he's obviously very busy. I'll definitely be checking back in.
