Under Gary's instruction I have been looking more closely into Andy Pavitt's work.
Well anyway, I'm very glad he made me look. We had a small lecture from him last year.
His work has a very stylized approach towards the imagery contained within his illustrations and he has also just started a blog on this very site! HERE .
Some of his touches with space and line are genius.
Anyway..I have begun to pester him, maybe I can show him something that he might see as worthy of interest, or take pity on me.. I find his use of colour interesting and like the way he simplifies his shapes.
