At a few recent conventions and local art events in Illinois one artist that has caught my eye is Rich Kunz of Diligent Visual where I saw this amazing print of Harley Quinn…
From his biography on his website DiligentVisual.com
“I am a high school art teacher and freelance artist from the Chicagoland area. I have been interested in creating art for as long as I can remember. As a child I spent countless hours trying to sharpen my drawing skills by copying work that inspired me. Subjects that I took special interest in ranged from animated movies to comics and fantasy themed paintings.
After high school, I attended community college while working part-time. Eventually, I transferred to Illinois State University where I earned a bachelor’s degree in art education. I have since obtained two master’s degrees; also in education and administration. More recently, I completed a 13 week illustration course instructed by Donato Giancola. I also train with Watts Atelier Online and actively participate in Life Drawing Workshops in my area.
I have been teaching art at the high school level for seventeen + years. I am married and I have three children (who are featured in much of my work posted on this website).”
