“Well. Um, big question, um, but to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all.

Certainly the most popular great painter of all time.

The most beloved.

His command of color – the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty.

Pain is easy to portray – but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world…. no one had ever done it before.

Perhaps no one ever will again.

To my mind, that strange wild man who roamed the fields of Provence, was not only the world’s greatest artist – but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.”

This episode gets me every time.



As a young architect and wanna-be fine artist, I am absolutely mesmerized by artist Jeremy Mann.

The way he instills the somber energy and flow in his cityscapes, bringing them to just the right level of abstraction, makes you feel as though you are there with him in a dream you can’t quite remember clearly.

Found via Fubiz.

Cityscapes like these are a strong inspiration for the setting of AntiBunny, and though I don’t have the artistic skill to come close to replicating them, and often make use of more simplified backgrounds, I occasionally like to take my time and use splashes of color to evoke a similar feeling of the city as a whole being a series of bright lights splashing around in the darkness.
