Inspired by artists such as Charles Schultz, Sergio Aragones (Mad Magazine), Gary Larson, Keith Haring and Rene Magritte, Ian uses a “less is more” style for “The Passenger,” which allows the surroundings of each panel to convey the intended thoughts or feelings.
In his work, Ian examines the song lyrics, movies, and books that are part of our culture, along with overheard conversations and his own thoughts. More recently Ian has begun picking up the paint brush again, something he had not done outside of art class since the late 1990’s. Some of these paintings are collaborations with his friend and fellow “Chuckburgh” artist, Dave Thomas.
