Great festival.

Artist Profile: Basil Wolverton

A cartoonist, illustrator whose characters are grotesque, heavily detailed so each pore is revealed, while maintaining a sense of humor. With such twisted features of his characters, he also manages to keep to classic construction of the figure. Remarkable stuff. Most cartoonists who copy his or R. Crumb's style don't manage to do this, and the impact of the pose is lost. Marc Hansen who created Ralph Snart, is an exception.

Artist Profile: A.J. Casson

A.J. Casson was a Canadian painter who has such amazing talent in composition, design, and color. He belonged to the Group of Seven, a team of Canadian landscape painters most active in the 1920s (Emily Carr is another famous painter from this group).

Artist Profile: Peter Doig

A Scottish painter who typically paints landscapes from photo references, but abstracts the image. I love him.
