Traditional Art

IMPACT Books brings to you pop culture art from graffiti to comics, but there’s still room for traditional art forms, and occasionally, we love to bring you some of the items from our sister imprint, North Light Books and The Artist’s Magazine, Pastel Journal, Watercolor Artists and more from Artist’s Network. After all, you can never have too wide of a background or influences to draw from, and some of the popular crossover styles include drawing angels (which people have been doing for centuries), calligraphy and celtic knots (likewise), and even using mixed media to create great comics! Even graffiti has its roots in cave paintings and the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt and Mayan cultures, so why not push the envelope? Get inspired, here.
