It’s always nice when someone takes the time to say something positive about your work. When that someone is as talented (and I mean seriously TALENTED) as Stephen Gardner, it’s especially welcome. Stephen is a Brit illustrator working in New York. Go take a look at his site or fantastic blog. In a world of illustration lead by style and trend his work stands out as having an integrity based in good old fashioned technique and practised ability – qualities I aspire to more than anything else.
