About Artist Lou Simeone
I enjoy creating eye-catching, colorful art usually outlined with bold, flowing lines. My creations can be spooky, trippy, or music-themed, but they're always wild and full of life.
My primary source of inspiration comes from the 70s art of Looney Tunes, Disney, and the Saturday morning cartoons I grew up watching as a kid. If you read my interview with Boardpusher below you'll discover that I was also inspired by the work of artists who created many well-known album covers during the 1970s and 80s. In addition to those styles, you'll most likely notice the curving, fluid motion I use for many of my characters and environments. It's a technique inspired by a style known as rubber hose and was prominent in many animated cartoons during the 1920s and 30s, in movies such as Steamboat Willie and the work that came out of Fleischer Studios.
Peruse the work on my site and if you have any questions drop me a line from my contact page. I can also be found on Instagram and Facebook and yep - I'm still on Flickr.
Boardpusher Skateboard Artist Interview
The Colorado-based skateboard company Boardpusher interviewed me for their blog. We discuss my art inspiration, my process, and all things skateboards during the interview. You can read the full interview on the Boardpusher website under their artist profile section.
My Art Featured in Customized Magazin
My work was featured in Customized Magazin (no that's not spelled wrong), issue number 45. Customized Magazin is a Kustom Kulture magazine based out of Germany. It features the work of artists from all around the world. The artists featured in the magazine specialize in various industries, from tattoos, custom cars, motorcycles, and bicycles, to skateboards and stickers. In addition to having my work featured in the magazine, I was asked if my Covid-19 Productions artwork could be used for the free bonus sticker that comes with the issue. Of course, I was thrilled to have my sticker artwork included.
