Today in Art & Design History - Volume 2

"Today in Art & Design History" is a feature for my professional Facebook page. It incorporates my love for history and research with my love of sketching and drawing.

This entry is a continuation of my "Today in Art & Design History" set of drawings. To see the first set, click here.
 
"Today in Art & Design History" is a feature I post on my professional Facebook page. The series contains people of note from all types of creative fields, such as visual art, illustration, three-dimensional art, architecture, writing, music, and even video game design. I research, sketch, and compile these facts and present them as you see in the form immediately below with the names and dates of importance. The sketches are all done in Photoshop with my Wacom tablet.

In interest of space, I've arranged the sketches alone. You can find the names and dates below the collected groups of 15.
