Here's a pretty sweet little video about several artists showcased at Cultivate712 - you'll see some of my work in there too.
Each day for the month of Sept. 2019 I created a small quick “Blind Line” drawing of myself - some digitally and some hand drawn. Some fast and some slow. It was fun. I have always enjoyed Blind Contour Drawing, in which you focus solely (at least mostly) on your subject instead of what is being drawn. The results are always interesting and most of the time there is truth in the lines somewhere... hints of the subject.
Here is all 30 days of Blind Line drawings of myself:
This sketchbook spread contains a smattering of various imagery and collage materials. An IKEA 'MIL" desk lamp (which I still use) instruction manual, a yellow sticker sheet frame, an image from National Geographic of what I am assuming are some serious Scottish break-dancers and a Smokey the bear advertisement. Juxtaposing this found imagery are a few doodles, characters and visual musings. My favorite part is the U.S.A. shaped creature in the background... and the igloo.
*Igloo means "home" and I guess for all intents and purposes that's a pretty good meaning behind it's symbolism used in my work as well.
I am an artist and art educator. I love drawing, painting, working in my sketchbooks and helping others do the same. Thanks for checking out my work.
