Robert Longo

His work has been running through my mind lately. Especially his "Men in the cities" series he did. These works are iconic and create such drama and edge. These are charcoal drawings but first they were photographs. He would take his models (one of them was cindy sherman his roommate at the time) and have assistants throw tennis balls at them and photograph their dramatic expressions. From there he masterfully drew in charcoal these black and white drawings. He totally inspires me to do something this exciting and energetic in my work.
