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.
