A white pencil on black paper drawing is a departure from the "traditional" method of drawing in many ways. It requires a different way...


I am encouraged by the artist accepting such a complex subject. In this single drawing I see a wide variety of textures - the skin of t...

Activity


Today I completed my registration to enter the 2017 ArtPrize. For those interested in prize money, this one is for you - two $200,000 Grand Prizes! One as the People's Choice Award and one by Jury Selection. A few times the same entry was selected by both! For those wanting their art to have a chance of being viewed by up to 400,000 people over 19 days, this one is for you, too.

This year's exhibit is from September 20 to October 8.

Next week, I go through the process of being matched up with a venue that is willing to show my drawing, "The Next Supper."

I started out drawing stick figures when I was a little kid, just like everybody else. When I was 12 I took a group art class. Steve Pugsley was the instructor. I remember really liking the "follow the edge of the object" drawing exercise. In high school I was the year book photographer for three years. I might have taken an art class but I can't say for sure. In college I had one art class that involved graphite, ink, and acrylic paint mediums. My classmates and instructor said I should change my major but I stayed with health sciences. 27 years later I took Drawing & Composition I at the local community college -- just to see what it was like. I was hooked and took Drawing & Composition II followed by Life Drawing. I haven't had time to take anymore classes in the last four years. I have a pretty rough work schedule now, 40-60 hours a week and I work out of town a lot, but I try and fit in portraits when ever I can. Some are commissions, some are family or acquaintances. At first, I couldn't draw for more than two hours at a time before my brain became mush. Now I can work on a drawing for up to nine hours. Time just stops, it doesn't exist when I draw. I think this is a good sign.

Current Residence: The house next to the driveway where my car is parked.
Favourite genre of music: Portugese Jazz
Operating System: Is there really anything other than a Mac?
Skin of choice: Massaged
Favourite cartoon character: Frazz, Zits, Get Fuzzy
Personal Quote: The mind needs to express itself, it's our connection with the past and our link to future.

I took at look at your favorite folder and it is astonishing how far people can go with just black and white. Your works are also amazing and I can sense the amount of time it took to draw them. Made me think how much better my drawings could be if I spent more time on them.
