It seems you can judge art by its cover

Art comes in many shapes and forms. If you have followed this blog for any length of time you would already know that I love all types of art. Some I may not fully understand but I do understand the time, effort and mostly heart that goes into any kind of art. I came across Mike Stilkey through a morning wondering through the internet and I liked his art at first glance. The style was whimsical and interesting with a wonderful balance of depth to his characters whilst having a wealth of colour to the mix. It was only when I looked closer that I realized Mike had taken his art to a different level. Mike uses book covers as his canvas. He uses a variety of materials do so including ink, coloured pencils, paint and lacquer. So if you can’t judge a book by it’s cover do what Mike does and use it to inspire you.

Thank you for reading, Would love to hear your thoughts...
