shark art

Shark
2011
marker and pen on paper
6 x 9 inches

Sometimes I film the making of my drawings, and I did just that with this shark. Unlike my paintings which require months of layering paint, my drawings on paper only take twenty or thirty minutes to complete, so it is possible to record the whole process. Still, I don’t do it all that often because the camera brings with it a strange pressure. Doing a video of a drawing is fun and useful, but it absolutely ruins the relaxing nature of this work.
