Wow.Also, he's apparently 16.
Alan, thank you so much for all of your posts on artists you find. Stubblefield's work is so cool, as is yours!
pretty impressive! til i saw this one and recognized it as andrew shek's work:http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_lhgt0xUz2C1qdqtmwo1_1280.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJ6IHWSU3BX3X7X3Q&Expires=1308355881&Signature=%2BUjEmc%2FIob4UkcDtFVVPj4dR7AA%3Dand andrew's original from last year:http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_123yrbDdSwY/TJk-NxpvEWI/AAAAAAAABaQ/L8T3lFr_zp8/s1600/cheetah_Andrew_Shek.jpg
This kid is the real deal. Passionate, talented, and hungry for learning. I've spent some time with him when he visited DreamWorks a couple of times--genuine, friendly guy.And, yeah, only 16. Sheesh!
ah so he's legit? that one piece hit a little too close for comfort to call original work, I'd say, but DANG, his stuff is awesome
But how in heavens-name did he get into Disney and which strings did he pull to visit Dreamworks?! His art is amazing, but that is even more amazing! Cause even when you're a very good artist it is hard to visit these places.So Anthony Holden, do tell me I'm very curious :)
@Stephanie RoosHe's a student in the Ryman program (http://www.rymanarts.org/). I guess through his connections in the program he was introduced to Shane Prigmore (Ryman graduate), who had him down to the studio for an afternoon. I work right down the hall from Shane, so I stopped by to meet De'Von when he was here....and that's the story!
Aah that explains a lot. Thanks Anthony, appreciate it.
your blog is one blog i keep coming to find new interesting artistic links and news, THANKS for posting them.i wish this guy lots of luck, real awesome talent, :)
Your art is awesome!CiaoPaolo
This guy has a beautiful sense of shape and simplicity-- and no wonder he was looking at Andrew Shek's work, if he's obsessed with shape then he'll be inspired by the great gestures Shek creates. really, really fun work!
@ Tyson: De'Von's cheetah is clearly labeled as "Cheetah inspired by Andrew Shek’s original design."
