Drawn to you. What is it about a pencil, pen, paintbrush that finds me so drawn to it ?
I love to shop for these things and am a bit of a nut with a rather large collection, and some "just in case " the pen runs out back up too !!!
I was wondering so really what is is that makes me so drawn ?
The possibilities, the endless possibilities that can come from just a simple sketch, a line on a page, a wash from a brush, it is rather like magic conjuring up these images.
Here is my Hero Quentin Blake drawing.
The simple line he uses to create the most amazing enchanting characters
I love love love the way she illustrates, how can you not be drawn.
and here is Jean - Michel Basquiat http://basquiat.com/
everything about this finds me drawn.
I would love to see what pens and pencils Quentin Blake and Babbette Cole use what paper they draw on, what paint they use.
I had some blank moleskines journals looking rather boring and brown and cardboardy and like all things with me i felt..yes that word...drawn to add/alter/create. Maybe it is the blank space like a long awkward silence that i find i need to fill.
These are currently available at my Etsy store
and before i end this post i just thought i would share with you my new profile pic, it is me !! and one of my cats, i also used this as my new postcards for sending out to customers/friends or random people who wear nice shoes :D
What are you drawn to ?
As always love to hear from you
