When in comes to a drawing, I tend to draw things that have moved me in a combination of ways. I am usually taken by the subject’s unique details, texture, form, as well as motion. Even something that seemingly stands still has motion in its form, gaze, and overall continence. After the initial “inspiration”, all these elements combine to form a sort of melody in my mind. This melody is mentally visualized and refined over time. When the idea is ready, the image is drawn directly onto paper. Every stroke counts and is not reworked. I usually use a type of extender to hold the pencil or pen. This allows me to stand back and keep a rhythm as the drawing is made.
