Watching A Master Artist At Work
♦ Artist Bill Sienkiewicz has long been a favourite artist and illustrator of ours and last year, his technique showcasing him working on a specific image was filmed at The Illustration Academy and we know that our visitors would find this fascinating so here it is from Visual Arts Passage on YouTube…
Here is his bio from wikipedia with a few additions from us:
Boleslav William Felix Robert Sienkiewicz (/sɪnˈkɛvɪtʃ/ sin-KEV-itch; born 3 May 1958), better known as Bill Sienkiewicz, is an Eisner Award-winning American artist known for his work in comic books—particularly for Marvel Comics’ The New Mutants and Elektra: Assassin. Sienkiewicz’s work in the 1980s was considered revolutionary in mainstream US comics, due to his highly stylized art that verged on abstraction and made use of oil painting, photorealism, collage, mimeograph, and other forms generally uncommon in comic books. He has also created illustrations for films like John Wick Chapter 2, Logan, Black Panther and TV shows like Legion. He has worked regularly with artistic collaborator and friend Denys Cowan too.
