last paintings from quick studies with craig nelson...a serious artist and illustrator. if you bought old motorhead albums or saw movie posters back in the day for national lampoon's x-mas vacation or revenge of the nerds, you've seen this guy's artwork. look him up. his class was great as it forces you to get fast and lose any hesitation while you're painting. sick!nicholas kiripolsky: concept design artist
