I want to use this forum for a Friday Focus Post in order to spotlight some really cool artists that are making a name for themselves and share this with my friends.
A couple of years ago, I was introduced to this artist by my friend, Tony Steele. We ran into each other again last November at the One Fantastic Weekend art workshop where we spent four days talking about creating art, discussing the business of art, and focusing on our own art projects. His name is Jacob Walker. He’s been forging a career for himself through graphic design and his art work. If you are a fan of H.P. Lovecraft you should check out his website at http://www.jacobwalkerart.com.
He has just finished a very successful Kickstarter campaign for his pen and ink drawings inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. His art book, has also become a coloring book and I’ve been watching it develop over the past couple of months. It’s been exciting to see this develop and watch his success.
His artwork speaks volumes by itself. I strongly encourage you to check it out and if you happen to see him at a convention, go introduce yourself. His work is spectacular.
