By Alan Williamson

One of my favorite Tumblr artist these days, Royal Crow. He is a self taught artist who draws and paints faces. I have always been drawn to portraits, whether it be in a photograph, drawing or painting. These abstract faces are so interesting and unique to the Royal Crow style. Be sure to follow his tumblr for weekly inspiration.

How would you describe your work?

My works are often the result of the analysis of small things that happen to me during the day. All that I see, in some way, influences my works.

Which creative medium do you prefer?

I really like to paint using oil color, although, in this period I'm often using watercolors or mixed media.

Who are your favorite artists?

I have too many favorite artists, very different from each other. 

Antonio Ligabue, Giovanni Boldini, Vincent Van Gogh, Jan Vermeer and Caravaggio are those who influence me most in this period.

What motivates you?

When someone tells me that my works touches them, this is what motivates me most. The possibility to be able to create something that will touch someone.

What’s next?

Once I've finished the one sketch a day project (I hope to make 365 of them), I would like to collect all my works in a book that tells the effects that this experience has had on me.
