Jeremy Fish is, what i think, a prime example of modern illustration.
His style seems to influence a vast amount of contemporary artists,
or at least helps to carry the artistic genre to which he belongs.
I can include myself in this catagory and i do find his work intriguing.
The details and simplicity of value are wonderful principles to adopt in craft.
I suggest that any aspiring artist take a look at his work.
