It’s been quite a long time since not making any art. I haven’t drawn anything since September, but it was good taking a little break from it. I have been working on my new project called Untitled Drawings, which consists of 10 illustrations as I drew them with graphite pencil first, then rendered them with several black marker pens on a piece of A5 card paper.
The black lines within are purely bold as I wanted to make these figures somewhat evocative indeed. I also have incorporated additional shapes into these pieces such as leaves and curvy spikes ones really resonate with the drawings I made in 2017 (Faces 1 and 2, Girl, Boy and Rose/Snake). I wanted this works to look more cartoonish and vivid. The overall style of these pieces are just very simplified yet modern.
I was totally drawn to producing black and white drawings since 2016. All I wanted to do was to producing more subtle drawings, starting with a black ballpoint pen and then switching to fine liners and marker pens of the same colour.
