Kent Williams

Kent Williams is known for his illustration of the graphic novel "Blood: A Tale" and also has several art books out. He also does editorial illustrations for several magazines.

I love the way paint and drawn line interact in these pieces. They have a textured, layered, emotionally raw quality to them. They are textured and interesting, but have a clear visual hierarchy. There is a loveliness and care infused into the painting, but, while descriptive, it remains loose and gestural.
