Jerry Bingham is a relatively new name to the world of Western Fine Art, though I’ve been an illustrator for a number of years. “The Art comes first in importance, but also I see myself as a storyteller. “A personal love of history began at an early age, almost as early as my love of art. So it was quite natural to find a direction for my work.”
I need to have a reason for approaching each canvas, and as I work out my preliminary sketches, deciding line, color, composition, and all the things I hope will make a good painting, I also ask myself, what story am I trying to tell, and how best to convey that story, like text and subtext. How much should be stated outright and how best to use that composition to reflect the emotion I am trying to pass along to the audience.”
I’ve been an award winning artist and writer in the entertainment industry for over three decades. Illustration. Art director and designer for Walt Disney Imagineering, Universal Studios, and more. Concept and storyboard artist for films, video games, commercials. Animation. Comic book artist & writer: Batman, Spiderman, and many more.
