The Art of Bud Cook

Bud Cook is a painter whose strong command of the human form is at the root of his fine art and illustrative work. His keen study of life yields a cleverly abstracted and stylized realism, enabling him to work for companies like Wizards of the Coast while simultaneously showing gallery work and contributing regularly to Every Day Original.

I met Boris and Julie at the IMC in 2008, having already been a fan for many years. It was a pleasure to see them work and to benefit from their depth of knowledge. It is an honor to do a piece as a tribute to their work, and to be able to draw from the inspiration they have provided to so many artists during their amazing careers.
