Update! Where We Are. Where We Are Going.

47: Thomas Fluharty - Painting with Purpose.

Thomas Fluharty is an editorial and storyboard artist who's work has appeared on the covers of Time, Mad, U.S. News & World Report, the Village Voice, ....just to name a few. When he isn't under tight dealines you can find him creating a body of work purely for the enjoyment of others, focusing on what he loves; pop icons, sharks or whatever else happens to move him. When he's not knocking out masterpieces, he enjoys time with his wife, five girls and little puppy Biddy. Talking Points: Don't Do art for Art's sake. Real Art moves us. How closed doors can be blessings in disguise. Success is awesome. But succeeding at the wrong thing is not. Personal Quote "Creating imagery is a gift, making it great is a sweaty endeavor."

46: Eli Maffei - Mistakes are Sexy

Eli began his art at an early age and it developed from a love of comics. Although losing his muse for several years in high school and throughout his time in the Marine Corps, several years later he got bit by the art bug again and tried his hand at oil painting. A good friend noticed his love for art and suggested that he try digital painting for video games; something Eli hadn't even realized was possible. He hasn't looked back since. Talking Points: Don't be a derivative. Do You! We are not lone Geniuses. Turn intimidation into inspiration. Book: The Way of Chuang Tzu elimaffei.com Podcast powered by Spreaker.
