Couldn’t get out of bed this morning after a rough night’s sleep.
Instead, I grabbed my old Pilot mechanical pencil and did some little drawings on an old book cover I rescued from hard garbage.
My drawings are intuitive and spontaneous. Using construction type marks, I like to pull apart things and go back to the beginning to find the essence
leaving traces of where I’ve just been, like traces left behind in the environment from nature, human beings and all living creatures.
Sometimes, when drawing, I remember my childhood when watching my older brother draw plans for buildings, real and imaginary. When he was at work I would go into his room and look for ages at the drawings on graph paper and lined exercise books.
Today, my brother is a very creative builder, cabinet maker and teacher. 50 years later, I still love to watch him draw his plans and architectural ideas on bits of paper. They are so precise, detailed and unique.
Where does drawing take you ?
