Can’t help reblogging this interview w/ one of my favorite artists (of the last couple years), Pascal Campion. I also recommend Fishinkblog‘s Blog, which features various interesting artists from around the web. I’ve enjoyed checking out The Art of Animation tumblr for a year or two now for inspiration and pleasure, and am glad to have found another art blog to keep up with in Fish Ink. I’ve been collecting a few “favorite artists” to inspire me as I attempt (occasionally) to get my own artwork out there a bit more often. Eunjung June Kim is another artist I’ve discovered (much more recently) who, like Pascal Campion, seems to have a knack for capturing everyday moments, domestic bliss, cozy romantic scenes, etc–all things a sap like me can really enjoy. Been thinking about my own influences art-wise lately, so maybe one of these days I’ll get around to doing one of these influence maps. Anyway, enjoy, and fingers crossed that I’ll get around to more of my own artwork sometime soon (or barring that, maybe Pascal or Eunjung can start doing Viking pictures as well…).
Pascal Campion is what I would call a keen observational illustrator. He manages to not only capture an emotion so completely, but he also silently narrates the story behind the image to our subconscious at the same time. Thus allowing us to bond with his images immediately and feel at one with what his characters are feeling. I contacted Pascal and asked a few searching questions, you can find his thoughtful and honest replies below.
