Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.

Armand S. Baltazar

Posted by Charley Parker at 9:51 am

Armand S. Baltazar
Armand Baltazar is a concept artist, illustrator and gallery artist based in California.

Originally from Chicago, he studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, Northern Illinois University and after a time working in advertising, went on to to earn a second BFA in illustration from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

His animation concept art credits include Prince of Egypt, The Road to Eldorado, Sinbad, Shark Tale and Flushed Away.

His online portfolio is divided into sections for animation, illustration and fine art. In the latter two you will find examples of a rough textured painterly stye that is a wonderful counterpoint to his more refined concept and illustration pieces.

His gallery paintings include figure painting and drawings as well as subjects like farm machinery and trains.

    Thanks Charley. I love his painting and his commercial work. His taste in pizza is probably this guys only flaw.

    Uh-oh, the NY/Chicago pizza rivalry raises its tomato stained head…

    For the benefit of other readers, Larry Robal’s blog, featuring his sketches of newsmakers directly on newsprint, has recently reached its second anniversary. Here is my previous post on Larry Roibal.
