Artist Inspiration: Stephen Fowler

I was looking at google images for research ("illustration emotional work"), found this wonderful group of faces and just had to know more about the artist.
It was done by Stephen Fowler, and I think this would be his blog. (There is another Stephen Fowler who draws dogs.)
I was delighted to have found it.
Some fav images
The blog hadn't been updated since January but I hope to see more.  He works a lot with stamping and frottage.  I love the Wildman life drawing series, with the model dressed up as a hairy sasquatch type figure, and inspired wonderful charcoal drawings. Fowler seems to do a lot of workshops getting people to try drawing and markmaking in playful ways.  (And that's my raison d'ĂȘtre for teaching art.)

Art can be fun.
