April 2019 // Drew Gentle Drew Gentle was born in 1947 and raised in Los Angeles, California. After high school, Drew went to work as an Artist Assistant for his father Robert Gentle at Hanna-Barbera studios. For the next four years, he worked summers in animation and for the rest of the year attended Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts), where he graduated with a BFA in 1969. Over the course of the next forty years, Gentle developed in his career as a multi-skilled animation artist, working continually at one studio while frequently freelancing at two or three other studios. During this time, his desire and passion to do non-animative fine art became stronger, and Gentle found pleasure and sanity in creating work outside the animation studio. While doing simultaneous work in the animation industry, Gentle continued to do more personal work, which included abstracted figurative personas,keeping hundreds of his drawings in notebooks. Years later, this treasure trove of drawings would form the basis for his long and large print series. Recently, Gentle has returned to working primarily in fine art, his longtime passion. He moved to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, in the summer of 2007 and is now enjoying the beauty of the Ozarks while he pursues his artistic vision. All of my imagery, be it in drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, clay or wax; springs from a desire to connect to the humanity in all of us; to reach through the feelings and display the multiple emotions - goo, bad or otherwise, with the full array of faibles, fears and persona, and then be able to reproduce it in a non-judgemental but truly empathetic way #tomandjerry #iamweasel #hannabarbera #cartoonnetwork #cowandchicken
April 2019 // Hannah Newsom-Doyle Hannah Newsom-Doyle is a designer with B-Unlimited, a custom licensed collegiate apparel company, where her designs are distributed nationally to various universities such as LSU, SMU and Baylor, and events such as the Roots Festival and EPCOT's Food and Wine Festival. A freelance illustrator, Hannah has illustrated three children's with author Marilyn Harkrider: Santa, Is It Really You?, Snore me Safe, Daddy, and Love at First Sight (Clay Bridges Press). She was also a finalist for #Doodle4Google in 2011 and received the Boomerang award for previous years' wins. John Brown University awarded her the Rookie of the Year at the 2013 Artie's Awards and Illustrator of the Year in 2014. Her work has been displayed at the Bentonville Film Festival, Art Ventures, and Pour Jons' Coffeehouse in Siloam Springs. She sells her work at events with Cattywampus Co-op, Deathray Expo, Homegrown, and FrostFest, and is consignment with The Milk Carton. Hannah calls Fayetteville, AR home with her dog, two cats, and her husband, Conner. Hannah is looking forward to putting together her own comics and graphic novels, and hopefully another gallery show in the near future. I have been drawing my entire life and was most heavily influenced by the pictures I found in children's books. I am mostly drawn to artwork that tells a story, or explores a character, which naturally lead me to studying illustration through my high school and college years. My style is influenced by the Golden Age of children's book illustration to Art Nouveau, from mid-century Modern cartoons to contemporary comic book artists, practiced in a wide variety of styles and techniques. This collection is gathered mostly from personally driven projects and ideas, and focuses mostly on storytelling and character concepts See more of Hannah's work on display at Art Ventures NW Arkansas until April 28th! #powermoth #moth #arkansas #arkansasartists
