John Gamble | Mechanical Pencil

Panhandle PBS recently had the chance to talk to John Gamble, a former Amarillo College student who recently moved to Las Vegas to pursue art full-time.

Texas Panhandle Artist John Gamble
Philosophy on Art
Art is a process. Every artist is on a journey to improve and express themselves.
Are you an art creator or an art producer? Or, do you see a difference between the two?
A creator, maybe, I see no difference. If you’re happy making your art that’s what is important. Even a carpenter framing houses can be art.
Why do you do what you do?
Drawing makes me happy.
What kind of art attracts you?
Frank Frazetta, Olivia De Berardinis Frank Miller, Boris Vallejo, The Hildebrandt Brothers, Vintage Sci-Fi Pulp Art, Pin-Up, Film Noir, I could go on.
What is the question you never want to be asked regarding your art?
“What’s this supposed to be?”
How do you know when a piece/series is finished?
Sometimes it’s hard. You don’t want to over work it. You can fidget yourself into failure….You just know.
If you could interview any artist (living or dead) who would it be?
Leonardo da Vinci…as an artist, and a nerd.
