I completely forgot that today was Thursday. Okay, that's not true, I completely forgot it was Thursday as far as it relates to my blog. I am glad that I remembered and just in the nick of time to review Stephen Macquignon's website and blog. It has been some time since I've had the chance to review an illustrator's blog and it's a fun change. You can view Stephan's blog here: http://stephen-sketch2color.blogspot.ca/
If you visit Stephen Macquignon's blog often you wont be bored. Several times a month Stephen posts new artwork to view. I wish that I could post illustrations so often! The colours in Stephen's artwork can be bright and colourful, but the colours always have a way of creating a serene effect. His line work is delicate and full of movement. It is a lot of fun to see what new illustrations he does every week!
Besides his illustrations Stephen has other fun things on his blog. He had a big section where he talked about his experiences at the SCBWI conference. Stephen shares things about his friends who are also artists to help them out. He also shares a lot about his experiences and inspirations, which makes his blog very inspiring to read.
Stephen's website is very well laid out. You can visit it here: http://macquignon.wix.com/stephenmacquignon- The main layout is in black and white, but it fits perfectly with his style. There are a lot of nice illustrations, many I didn't see on his blog, that you can pursue here. There is also a bit of extra information about Stephen here that you might not find on his blog.
If you have trouble keeping up with all of Stephen's blog and twitter (@macquignon) postings then you should check out his Jacket Flap account: http://www.jacketflap.com/profile.asp?member=StephenM Here you can get updates on all his new blog and twitter posts. You can also find more ways to connect with him here.
Please go and explore Stephen's site. You will be subjected to beautiful pictures and a fun atmosphere. If you don't like beautiful pictures and a fun atmosphere then why are you reading my blog? Ha ha ha
