Digital Arts Online interviews Robert G. Fresson
March 5, 2017
New signing Illustrator Robert G. Fresson has been interviewed by Digital Arts Online. Writer Miriam Harris describes his work:
Robert loves American comics from the 20th century and Ukiyo-e prints from Edo Japan, and we love his colourful and expressive combination of both.
In answer to the question 'Almost all of your illustrations are based on real-life. Is this a conscious decision?"
"I think it is to do with telling a story - I feel much more comfortable with the narrative possibilities of recognisable elements: figures, landscape and objects. I'm sure a better storyteller could use abstract forms and still guide us through a story arc...not me. I sometimes play with the abstract when I doodle absent-mindedly, but as Robert G. Fresson the work stays consciously figurative."
