Recently I was perusing the website of illustrator & mad-genius Roger DeMuth whom I was lucky enough to have as a professor at Syracuse University. There’s a great video interview of Roger on his site as well as a ton of his drawings, paintings, pop-ups, sketchbooks, boxes, plantlife etc and I immediately set about some creative output of my own. After I finished the drawing above it slowly dawned on me the DeMuthesque nature of what I’d done and I realized: I was under the influence of Roger.
I recall he gave me some of the best and most frank advice I ever received as I was preparing to graduate. He said “Paul… just go out there and fail.” Roger has graciously accepted our offer to do a bit of guest posting on InvisibleMan so you’ll see some of his amazing works here soon.
