I got a few quotes from cheetah artist and illustrator, Steve Alatalo about how he enjoys working on his illustration and drawing projects.
Steve Alatalo is a well known animal illustrator who has done works for a number of publications, including the New Yorker, Vice, and National Geographic. He’s made a few illustrations for the video game, Halo, and was included in the video game’s first-ever art book. He’s also done artwork for the video game, Halo, and the video game, Halo: Reach.
Steve is not the only illustrator who enjoys making animals. Illustrators of all kinds have been doing it for a long time. In fact, in one recent article, the New York Times Magazine featured an article with over 20,000 illustrations by illustrators from all over the world. While it was nice to see the diversity of the animal illustration community, it also made me think for a minute about animal cartoonists.
The animal cartoonists are cartoon artists who create images that often depict animals. From what I understand, there are a lot of cartoonists in the animal illustrators subculture that get their inspiration from graphic design. What I found interesting is that when I look through my Twitter feed, there are a ton of animals that I haven’t heard of who create artwork that is not just animal based, but is also a bit of a commentary on the human condition.
The animal cartoonist movement has been going strong since the ’80s. When I was a kid, I think I was the only kid that ever really cared about animal illustrators as a subculture. This probably came from my mom being a big animal lover and having me read Animal Farm and The Wilder Mind.
And yet, the animal illustrators that I knew and loved have all been moved to far more “realistic” art styles. This is something I picked up from art history, but I think it’s a big problem. If we want to create art that has meaning, we need to do so in a way that is truly realistic.
I feel the same way about the new comic book series ‘Kitty-Kopf’ that I’ve just read. The comic was a lot more realistic, but it was extremely hard to follow. I really wish more artists would take on the task of making realistic art. That said, I love the new art style so that it matches the old art style perfectly. I don’t know how I feel about the ‘Kitty-Kopf’ comic book series.
I’m not as into the comics as I am the movies. However, I have to say that I really like the comic book style and all the artwork in it. It’s just too bad that there aren’t more artists who can do realistic art. If more artists were more willing to take on this challenge, the whole world would be a better place.
One of the things that’s so great about the new art style is that it works with the old style. As soon as your eyes adjust to the bright colors and sharp lines, everything else blends into the background and becomes part of the art. You never have to wonder whether to paint something on a wall or under a table. You don’t have to worry about having to adjust your brush to match the angle of the lighting.
It’s just as easy to get in the habit of picking a favorite quote from an old photograph as it is to get in the habit of picking a favorite picture from an old photo. It’s not really about picking one because it’s a habit, it’s about picking one because it’s a habit.
