Austrian illustrator Jos Danilowatz (1877-1945). I would say his work still has a great influence on my work... like the obvious infuence of Danilowatz on this piece (what I had posted sometime back):

  1. wow, i never heard of him but is a great surprise, love the middle way between caricature and realism!
    thanks for sharing.

  2. Never heard of him. Great Illustrations!

  3. Inspiring still, even carries with it that sense of times. So much art today is "Modern, abstract... blah blah" just fun to look back, at the characture's and details.

    thnx for the inspiration =D

  4. This guy is fantastic. I wish more artists would share what inspires them. maybe I should do that more too. Thanks for passing him along!

  5. Wow, thanks for sharing a new artist to look for, Jos Danilowatz stuff is very awesome.

  6. Flaviano, Tobias, Jon, Jake, Brian! It's my pleasure! I'm really happy that you like Danilowatz' work. I'll post more of his art in the next days... I'm in the happy position of owning a rare first edition of his book "Motor in der Karikatur" (1925).

  7. Incredible pieces! Those buildings!! MY GOD!! I thank you too for sharing, Florian. I didn't know him either (unfortunately).

    Greetings, Maestro!!

  8. Jos Danilowatz was really very great artist, I don't know him but his work simply dicribe about him. Thanks for posting his art here. Your work is also inspires me.

  9. Florian! Haven't been around for a long time but I see your still rockin' it! Keep it up.
