The Art of Drew Tucker
Tall Tales and Bedtime Stories
This new collection of work is loosely based on familiar children’s stories and tales that I had heard and have told to my children. These images are not intended to present the viewer with a “complete image” but leaves details of information to allow the viewer to complete the story for themselves.
As an artist and illustrator Drew is interested in creating a connection with the viewer using the traditional elements of art to convey an emotional story as well as a literal. Best known for his watercolor work for Wizards of the coast this new series of work is similar stylistically though the medium has changed to oil. One can find the familiar use of shape, color and texture and abstractions meant to help guide the viewer on a subconscious level. The aim as an artist is to bring emotional quality of fine art to the commercialized aspects of illustration.
Born is St. Louis Mo. to a supportive family Drew showed an interest in Art at an early age. He has been an artist his entire life. Drew graduated with a BFA in Illustration from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA and later with a MFA in Illustration as Visual Essay from School of Visual Arts NY,NY.
