So, I just really wanted to talk about Claire Keane.
She is by far my inspiration. I’ve always kind of thought about doing character design, but after seeing her work and learning more about Claire, it’s become more of a dream. Because it isn’t just the fact that her art is beautiful, it’s her. She’s an everyday mom who doodles on scrap paper for her daughter’s lunchbox, but she still has such a privilege to work with Disney on certain movies. She just draws so freely, yet it still comes out beautiful each and every time.
Claire Keane, you are just so wow.
The best word for you is wow.
What artists have inspired or continue to inspire you the most?
Let’s break this up into not-on-tumblr and tumblr artists. These are artists who give me that insatiable need to create whenever I see their work.
Glen Keane, Renoir, Mucha, Jason Lutes, Bryan Konietzko + Mike DiMartino, Mary Blair, Hiromu Arakawa, Colleen Atwood, K. Lynn Smith
Loish, starsandpolkadots, viria, claireonacloud, jessfink, kingkaiser, isthatwhatyoumint, kisskicker, daunt, hannahchristenson, miraongchua and so many others that I would pretty much just have to post my following list to show them all.
When you get this, you must publicly post something nice about at least 5 different people you follow, then copy and paste this in each of their ask boxes. (you don't have to do this i just wanted to let you know idk id k)
