It took awhile to compile this post and its based on an artist whose work I love, Rex Ray. He passed away last week and I was very sad to hear he had passed.


If you’re not familiar with his work, this is a wonderful video interview with Rex Ray and shows an array of his work and how he moved from being a graphic designer to a fine artist.

Your artwork, you vision and your passion will be missed, Mr. Ray.
