Devin Francisco is an artist, illustrator and graphic designer currently living and working in St. Paul, Minnesota. United States.devinfrancisco.bigcartel.com
He was renowned for his luscious palette and exciting action scenes, his sexy women and his ability to shoot from the hip when facing a deadline! Norman Blaine Saunders' illustration career was as big and successful as any artist could hope for, and no single genre could contain his remarkable talent. He painted them all - aliens and aviators, heroes and hunters, detectives and demons, quarterbacks and comic books, sex kittens and serial killers, westerns and wacky packs!
He was curious about everything in life, and his paintings were enriched with his detailed studies of people, history, science and nature. No matter where his visual curiosity led, he branded that world with his own dynamic design, playful skepticism and a solemn belief that life is tough. He was shockingly irreverent a nonconformist who laughed at the self-righteous and advocated the School of Hard-Knocks. He was a colorful story-teller and an innovative thinker, charming, insightful and fearless. He loved women, children and puppies, and he always cried when the hero died.www.normansaunders.com

Twisted somewhere between the then and now, visions have plagued me. Art is my only antidote. Refining my skills and techniques to anatomically draw the figure, focusing on rendering with intricate detail through many media, the characters and creatures conjured reflect a relationship amongst themselves and also with their environment, often in tales of innocence, dark romance, duality, and fear. With a stroke of my brush, layer upon layer of color saturates the paint surface to illuminate the lights and deepen the shadows, capturing three-dimensional forms in a two-dimensional restraint.
Conversely through painting, I have been drawn to the world of special effects, exploring the boundaries of sculpture by applying my two-dimensional designs to three-dimensional make-up effects and prosthetics. Through this combination of visual and performing art, I can create something more than just a fixed scene or expression on canvas or stone; I create a simulation of life itself.
As the creator, I strive for perfection in realism, to continuously grow as an artist in everything that I do. Looking up to the Renaissance masters Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Caravaggio, and the countless others who held a standard of art that is absent from the world today, I aspire to reach the perfection of that golden age of art. Despite the familiar connotation of the word "effects," the name "KOSART Effects" not only encompasses my alter ego of special effects, but also of all my art and everything that I am. The word "effect" means "end result" and “the extent to which something succeeds." In a way, "KOSART Effects" is more of a promise to myself and to the world, a promise best said in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, "So much has been done. More, far more, will I achieve; treading in the footsteps already marked, I will pioneer a new way, explore unknown powers, and unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of creation."www.kosarteffects.com
