Antonio Lopez

I've been drawing since I was 10 years old. I'm always looking to improve and I look to more established illustrators to see how they work, what methods they use and try them for myself to see what I like and what works for me and my developing style.

 I remember seeing Antonio Lopez's illustrations in Vogue magazine back in the 80's. I use to rip them out and and save them for reference to help improve my drawing and illustrating skills.  I really admired the style of his fashion ilustrations. I found out that his birthday was only two days after mine! Creative Aquarius! He unfortunately died back in '87 or '88. He  left a great body of works and he continues to influence many other illustrators.
