I have always been drawn to photographing artists. Any type of artist. Painters, welders, sculptors, singers, actors, and even mimes. There is something somewhat magical about a person that can take nothing and turn it into something with nothing more than their skills and imagination.
Gary Kotula is a pen & ink artist that uses very thin lines to create almost three-dimensional images. His passion is the Western heritage and you can easily see that in his website: GK Corral.
One of the things that stands out about Gary’s work is his use of subtle subliminal images in his drawings. They range from Southwestern historical figures to wild life found in the landscape that he is drawing. You can spend hours looking for them and some you will either never find or never notice until they are pointed out.
