Inspiration: Art

I've been following Craig Atkinson's work for as long as I can remember, and yet for some reason I never posted about him on DA. I only realized it this morning when I was catching up with his work on flickr.

Craig draws from the U.K. and he draws a lot. When he's not drawing, he's printing and shipping short-run art publications from the small publishing house he started back in 2005, called Café Royal Books.

Craig sums up sketchbooks perfectly, "…I find sketchbooks a great way to free up from over-considered ideas, and a great way to counteract the exact requirements an art director might have when working commercially." If you have the time, you can flip through his sketchbooks for hours of inspiration and improvised narratives. If you don't, take a look below at some of my favorite pages.
