Artist Michael Olivo creates comics and artwork that often skirts the completely abstract. In the masses of colorful blobs, tubes, and twisted forms, characters and narratives peek through. Olivo is also a prolific collaborator (and has already been mentioned in previous Artist of the Day posts for people like Samuel Hayes and Niv Bavarsky). Olivo collects work produced with others under a special tag on his Tumblr.
Clearly recognizable monsters and animals are sometimes featured in Olivo’s color-saturated drawings. His comic influences are evident with his use of line-art and dynamic black-filled areas.
