Artist Challenge

Life of the Party Will Bullas 

Life of the Party by Will Bullas 

Over at Greywaren Art, Maggie posted a challenge to her readers: feature an artist you admire and let your readers know why. Spread the love!

There are a lot of artists I admire, but if I had to pick a favorite, it’d be Will Bullas. He’s been an artistic inspiration ever since I first saw his work. He’s creative, funny – no wait, hilarious – and cute. His technique is constantly improving and refreshingly unique. And the puns! Wine-ocerous? Crabernet? A man after my own heart!

I have these two prints above my bar. I love them dearly for their weird, clever, punny originality. And the drink theme, of course. And the ducks. Gotta love the ducks.

His bold use of flat color and wonderful texture are very appealing to me. He lets the subjects speak for themselves, using simple compositions, plain backgrounds, wonderful expressions, and witty titles.

He can do realistic, serious work as well, and excels at it. But the best part of being a Will Bullas fan is snorting your coffee up your nose because you are laughing so hard.

  1. Hi, I did not know about Mr. Bullas. Thank you for my smile of the day. Nice technique.

    My first visit to your blog. You do great stuff, too.

  2. Life of the party, HAH!

    I’m going to have to browse more of his work. Someone’s punniness rubbed off on me.

  3. Jo, glad I could introduce you to him! And thanks for stopping by.

    Nathan, you know he’d be a hit at cons too.

    Lisa… *snort*

  4. I’ve loved Bullas’s work ever since I first read an article about him in Wildlife Art Magazine several years ago. I think my favourites are his dog pieces like “Lab Dance”. I love the lightheartedness of his work – something I certainly could learn from. Thanks!

  5. Thanks so much for bringing Bullas’ work to the attention of those of us who had no idea!
    I loved the Three French Hens- just fantastic.

  6. I came over from Maggie’s site. I love Will Bullas’s work. But it is hard to beat his “Duck Tape”

  7. Wow, thank you all for coming to visit! This was a really fun project and I am thrilled to be able to share Bullas with all of you. :D Thanks, Maggie!

  8. Yeah, that Bullas guy is funny. Always was, actually. Even in high school he made us laugh. He left Phoenix to follow his dream–to sell Kirby vacuum cleaners door-to-door. Who figured this art thing would work out.
