The Art of Michael Rohner
Self-taught artist Michael Rohner draws his whimsical yet realistic characters with influences from comic book art, graffiti, animation, and surrealism. His animal totem series is an exploration of the wisdom of animals. Michael brings his colorful meditations to life using pen and ink, primarily on paper, and layers in colors using any combination of water color, marker, spray paint, goauche, oil pastel, colored pencil, paint marker, and so on for greater contrasting effect. Watch the video to the right to see his techniques on an illustration that took roughly 6 weeks condensed into about two minutes.
