March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

What’s not to like about the work of today’s artist, Brazilian José Carlos Lollo? His work is endlessly inventive, joyful and creative and he’s a master of his media whether he’s illustrating books with digital drawings, painting nature in traditional media, or populating sculptural universes in wire, wood and paper. Check out his extensive sets on flickr to really appreciate his range.

You can see José’s artwork on his flickr imagestream:
