Noted Southern Artist & Illustrator …and His Badassery ArtWork
[Back to the Future -1980’s Classic -Fantasy/Science fiction film]
As a writer and blogger, I strive to create curiosity and share anything new I have learned. After all, when we are curious, we see things differently; we use our powers to learn something more fully. Well, I want to share with you what I learned about my friend Carlton Salter, noted Southern Artist and Illustrator.
Since I was a little girl, I have always been intrigued; almost hypnotized by art. All art … Any medium. By medium, I mean any substance the artist uses to create his or her artwork.
With that said, today’s blog post is a first! The first time I have the honor to interview and ask a distinguished “Creative” if I could share his work, craft, and gift and badassery art with our audience.
I met Carlton on Facebook last year. I do my best to build friendships with people on all my social media platforms who seem genuine and have something positive ‘going on in their world’. Believe me, Carlton has a lot going on! These virtual friendships we build on social media are magical opportunities where we can befriend someone who stands out in their craft. I believe that when we pay attention to our own world – – – the right people show up!

There is a coolness and genuine quality about Carlton. His impressive art and illustrations have a dream-like character that takes us to the realm of the fantastic.
Carlton’s artwork is a feast for our eyes. He brings a new element of dreamy images infused with a touch of animation and reality – – – which we find absolutely extraordinary!
With his amazing skills, he is able to show just how creative animation art can be. I especially love how he plays with color and lines that establishes depth in his work.
