    looks a bit like a rip off of Justin lee Williams paintings ??? I think he is based in N.Z or Australia too ?

    • mcgennisken

      Hey Kate, definitely take that as constructive criticism – Justin Williams has always been a big inspiration to me, along with marlene dumas, and there’s definitely some similarities – however I’m not ripping him off. I guess I feel if you dig deep enough these days, you’ll find similarities in a lot of peoples works. Thanks for the comment though! :)

      • Ringo Starr

        By the look of these paintings I can tell you were influenced by Omer Asik.

  • Jan McGennisken

    Original art works come from the heart.We interpret what we have seen, heard and admired in our lives and turn those things into pictures that please our own senses.
    Similarites may exist, but they are never the exact same workas others may have done because they are completely original brush stokes, combinations of colours, papers and ideas.
    it is no different to someone taking a musical tune but re writing different lyrics to it.

    Nice to see you here Ryan! I saw your artwork in a gallery shop in Manly and I liked it a lot straight away. Keep up the good work! :-)

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
