Anything painted directly, on the spot, always has a strength, a power, a lively touch that is lost in the studio. Your first impression is the right one. Stick to it and refuse to budge.
- Eugene Boudin
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.

Rad Sechrist

Rad Sechrist
I don’t know much about Rad Sechrist, except that he is a contributor to the Flight anthologies and he draws wonderful short comics that you can read online. His confident linework and use of a palette that manages to be simultaneously colorful and restrained remind me of Kazu Kibuishi’s wonderful drawings.

There are pages for two different features on the site: Beneath the Leaves and Wooden Rivers. Pages are arranged chronologically from the bottom up. There is some more art on the Gallery Nucleus site, the Flight 2 Preview and on Michael Gagne’s site.

    What a good site!
    Your are posting really important artists and issues in your blog.
    This last one – about Kazu Kibuichi, made me remember the art of a great spanish comics illustrator – Jaime Martin.
    Both of them are wonderful.

    Thanks Frank. I wasn’t familiar with Jamie Martin. Very cool.
