Archetypes - drawing series 3
Drawing is a creation of its own and for me, quite different than painting. It allows me to create works in a very contrasting manner which also achieves a contrasting look to match as well. The medium has had a renaissance with more artists focusing their attention to it, using its graphic elements to combine pop culture with irony and sarcasm. I appreciate the more technical style of drawing, the detail I can achieve and the immediacy of the process. Influences range from early 1970's illustrators and fantasy artists, such as Franzetta, Roger Dean, Chris Foss, to geography, iconography and archetypal imagery.
