Eric Petersen is an artist living in Joshua Tree, CA U.S.A. His style is influenced by instructional graphics, video games and the look of vintage comics of the 1940s. He draws uniform lines on a computer to strip away some of the human element and expressive quality seen in non-digital work. He uses perspective and unnatural colors to set up a voyeuristic feeling and create an unsettling mood. He is interested in the combination of a purely functional illustration style with an emotional scene.
