My 13 Favorite Artists of All Time

My Thursday Thirteen this week?
My top 13 Favorite Artists Who Aren't Me!

Okay, that sounds a little ego-centric but I admire the work of many other artists for various reasons which I won't bore you with here. The top four - Max, Disney, Rockwell and Dali are probably the artists most responsible for my style which is kind of a schizophrenic combination of all of them. And M.C. Escher is a pencil artist extraordinaire - one I would emulate if I had all the time in the world to sketch - I love the mind play of his work and the beauty of his lines.

One of the things I severely lack as an artist is the ability to spend forever on a piece of artwork. I am, for all intents and purposes, kind of a "quick sketch artist". I love to get it down and move on to the next creative thought bubble. So I admire those artists who do things I would like to do but probably never will because of lack of time or patience - one of those things being spending years on one piece of work!
