Illustrator Research: Frank Stockton
I could not find much biographical information on Frank Stockton, but his blog has tons of information about his process and the clients he engages with. Some of his clients are Esquire Russia, Fantagraphics, More Magazine, Penthouse, The New Yorker, etc. He uses a very clean line with exaggerated perspectives, offering dramatic solutions to the narratives he illustrates. His use of color is also quite interesting. Since I took the color studies class last year I have been paying close attention to artists that use color in a manner out of the ordinary, especially artists that use it to aid storytellng.
