Travis Louie is so talented it hurts

Anyone can be an artist; to be called a craftsman means you're really good at it. Travis Louie "uses acrylic paints over tight graphite drawings on smooth grounds, like 'plate' finish illustration board or finely sanded, primed wood panels." It's amazing that such delicate surfaces can be produced with acrylic paint. Mr. Louie has a show opening at Roq La Rue gallery in Seattle.

Morley Hedge at Seventy-Five, Travis Louie. Be sure to visit the gallery preview to read the stories about these characters. (An artist after my own heart!)

These remind me of Mark Mothersbaugh's Beautiful Mutants.
