A Serious Man: Interview with Ryan Tippery

A Serious Man: Interview with Ryan Tippery

Recently Prismacolor intern, Samantha DeCarlo, touched based with up-and-coming artist Ryan Tippery. Check out her interview with this colored pencil artist from Chicago!

As a graduate from the American Academy of Art in Chicago with a BFA in Illustration, Ryan Tippery possesses a specific skill set in drawing, specifically with Prismacolor colored pencils. His subject matter focuses on elements of the human condition and nature, often depicting the figure struggling with an inner conflict, or detailing an aspect of the Earth most people overlook.

He’s Quite the Character

He’s Quite the Character

Prismacolor intern, Samantha is back! This time with an interview with character artist, Mac Garcia!

Growing up in Houston, Texas, artist Mac Garcia always loved to draw-perhaps too much for it landed him in detention quite often. Luckily for him, however, his mother suggested he put his knack for drawing to good use and work as a caricature artist at Six Flags during high school summer break. Mac considers this some of the best advice he ever received. Since then, he now does custom & event caricatures on a full time basis & is a memberof the ISCA (International Society of Caricature Artists).

Often finding inspiration from music, Mac explains that some faces he draws relate to a specific genre,which helps capture the mood of the caricature. Then again, sometimes his crying children “add some spice to it.” He’s a true believer that art is everywhere, and disagrees with the old saying, “You either have it or you don’t.” Mac explains, “even the business man has to match a tie every morning, the soccer mom paints with her make-up and don’t forget the little ones with their food sculptures.” Let’s get to know Mac a little better, shall we?
