Artist statements below--
Jason Armadillo has been a resident of Gainesville on & off for over 20 years & studied at the Savannah College of Art & Design. He has created numerous pieces of art for people around town, the U.S., & overseas. He describes himself as a "cartoony" illustrator & mainly works in the realm of monsters & animals. As influences & inspirations, he sites the work of Leonardo da Vinci , the Dutch Masters for their attention to detail, the animation of Looney Tunes directors Chuck Jones & Bob Clampett & numerous comic artists from the last 100 years.
When not drawing or painting creatures, he is taking care of his 5 year old twins , Jack & Joe; practicing with his band "Half-Crocked"; or scrambling around trying to figure out what to make for dinner before his wife gets home from work.
Jason Armadillo's blog is periodically updated with new art & can be found at :
Masseo's artistic expression reflects a dismantling of the orchestrated precision & execution found in most general works of art . A reconstruction of one's ideas of beauty & sensibility into a landscape enmeshed with natural & geometrical forms. These compositions are infused with an intuitive emergence of harmonious color & composition.
