Bob Staake, the renowned American illustrator, cartoonist, children's book author, and designer has a very impressive portfolio filled with bright and vibrant color palettes.
He is familiar with the importance of understanding the creative process and shares a bit from his with a showcase of personally inspiring posters (a selection of those can be seen here) that have had a large impact on his work and from which Bob has developed his own style from.
Here is a look at some of Bob's work for your color inspiration. You can also read an interview with him here, and see two videos of his drawing process below.
Watch as he creates a character with nothing but a mouse, a keyboard, and an antiquated version of Adobe Photoshop 3.0.
