Overpass detail – Chicago 2014

 

One of my favorite illustrators (along with William Joyce, R. Crumb, and Maxfield Parrish is French artist Guy Billout.

One of my favorite photographers who is known mostly for his black and white work  (along with Henri Cartier-Bresson, Michael Kenna and Keith Carter)  is Rocky Schenk .

They are all great but I really love the quirky, bold and simple, but elegant look of Billout’s color illustrations and the atmosphere and mystery of Schenk’s black and white work.

 

I made this image last year while stopped in rush hour traffic on an agonizingly long commute home.
