My Favorite Artist: William Blake
I don't know why, but felt like posting a video to my favorite artist. William Blake is a poet and painter who pops up every now and again in popular culture. For instance, the film Red Dragon with the Hannibal Lecter character is inspired by William Blake's Red Dragon paintings. Blake is known for being highly influenced by the Bible and for being rebellious. He created fantasy characters and could be considered the father of today's FanArt. His most famous piece, titled Ancient of Days and shown below, is smaller than your notebook paper.
