Sterling Hundley is a Richmond, VA-based illustrator and painter. A university art professor by day, Hundley’s work has won a heap of awards and been published in an array of magazines. His work (much of which is commissions) runs an interesting gamut from almost cubist-like forms to Mucha-esque women to a Edward Hopper-like painting technique, and at times has everything from a street art feel as well as odes to abstract expressionism. It may sound crazy but you really have to dig through his blog to see what we’re talking about. And, his work is not pastiche either- it’s actually really fresh stuff with very contemporary compositions and very interesting color palettes. We encourage you to follow his blog as he answers questions, shares works-in-progress, sketches and studies.
Nice bit of writing From thetouristzine on Tumblr. Thanks for the shoutout.

A bit of process behind the painting “A Fruitless Endeavor”. It is one of the largest that I’ve painted at 8.5’ x 5’. It sold to a patron in Russia and took two years of sporadic work to complete. The real work was in defining the style and direction for the pieces in the exhibition and body of work that followed. www.sterlinghundley.com
WIP. Thought it was done, but found that I needed to sacrifice the image for the betterment of the painting.
Pro Tip: sharpen all your pencils before you begin. If they go dull, grab another. I sharpen with an exacto knife- better lead and more of it exposed. Yes, that is a Wacom stylus. No, do not sharpen it. Follow at www.blog.sterlinghundley.com to see what I do with them.
