Joe Cruz illustrations
artist on tumblr
Joe Cruz is the master of oil pastel; his creations are an inspired mixture of photocopier toner lit up with oil strips of neon color. Unsurprisingly, his work is beautiful both online and in print.
Color is a surefire way to grab attention, but Cruz’s work goes far beyond simply grabbing attention. He manages to maintain contemplation in the viewer by experimenting with theme and composition.
