Artist to Check out: Jon McNair

I forget where I discovered Jon McNair‘s art, but it was somewhere on Flickr. I remember thinking that I wish I could draw like him. His drawings depict very beautiful illustrations that allude to medieval imagery, woodcuts, and a little Dungeons & Dragons (that could just be me though). For those who know me, you can see why I really admire seeing this guy’s stuff. Check out his website and be a friend of his on flickr at http://flickr.com/photos/jonmacnair/

Jon MacNair, an artist and illustrator living in Baltimore, was born in Seoul, South Korea and grew up in the suburbs of Michigan where he developed a love of drawing. After many years of having people tell him “You should be an artist”, he decided to attend The Maryland Institute College of Art where he earned a degree in illustration. Jon still lives in Baltimore where he works as a freelance illustrator doing work for various editorial publications. He is also the co-creator of Pangoland Studios, a collaborative art and illustration team which specializes in unique stationary and greeting cards.

He has great studio and work in progress photos:
