About the Artist:
George Cwirko Godycki is an illustrator from San Francisco.
He lives there because he loves to pair his expensive coffee with cheap dim sum,
and is currently probably sitting outside on a bench in the fog,
constantly taking his coat on and off as the weather changes.
He makes art that looks the way Ol’ Dirty Bastard of the Wu-Tang Clan sings:
effusive, provocative and honest.
George Cwirko Godycki's art style is as flexible as a yoga instructor, combining a love of many things from comics,
printmaking and fine art throughout history.
His greatest love is illustration, finely designed intricate pictures full of hidden wonder,
in the tradition of his heroes: J.C. Leyendecker, Alphonse Mucha, Arthur Rackham, Sergio Toppi and Moebius.
In addition to freelance illustration, t-shirt design, video game concept art,
self-published sketchbooks, and editorial illustration,
George Cwirko Godycki possesses a real passion for teaching and
for the last five years has taught at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
He teaches classes in figure drawing, anatomy, and environment design as well as many classes about costume drawing.
His hands are usually gross, but it’s not because he doesn't know how to wash them;
it’s just because he draws with a lot of charcoal and charcoal doesn’t come out even when he washes them a lot,
and it’s hard to get charcoal out of your fingernails even though he does try really hard.
He doesn’t know why washing hands is so easy for other people. He did wash them, he promises.
