A concept superhero alien lady… Made with a black pointer. Please ignore the eraser debris, I’m lazy like that.
Just sharing a bit of my drawings and doodles because Atherz inspired me to do so! I digitally processed these black-marker drawings some time ago because a) I was practicing, b) it was fun and c) it looks cool. All of these were made in the past two years.
Now I’m going to go and make some new drawings…
Sometimes I feel like Jack Dawson. Well, a less-talented, less perverted, female version of him…
I can travel the world penniless, only with the clothes on my back and a pen and some papers.
I have never tried to draw with charcoal. I have never tried to draw a naked woman. Or man, for that matter.
My medium of choice is my simple sketch book, or a plain A4 sized paper. My art is usually done with a black felt-tip pen, or a ball-point, or a pencil. Nothing special.
My drawings are not detailed. I don’t have the patience to sketch and shade the angle of a nose just right. They’re more abstract. Simple. Meaningful.
Here are a few specimen, photographed badly. I and cameras just don’t get along, although that is another matter for another time.
And so when I view my drawings again, I feel ashamed to include myself under the header of ‘Artist’.
And judging by the picture quality, I certainly can not make it as a photographer either!
I believe my true calling lies in writing. To weave a web of words is my specialty. To paint a picture with letters and dots and commas is my art.
And I am content. I am an artist, my medium is paper. My pen is my sword. Sometimes I might draw with them, but words will always be my passion.
