I did these pieces for a TAFE gallery. The faces belong to the homeless and I wanted to show the hardship in the faces with the deep wrinkles and scraggly hair. These were done using black and white scratch card.
Lines and Patterns
These are straight to pen sketchbook drawings I did. I enjoyed using lines and patterns to create the textures. I find stippling and cross hatching really work well for my style of drawing. I had fun with the owl, the repetitive nature of drawing the patterns was very hypnotic. My drawings have a lot of references to psychedelics and spirituality. I also love making up wacky characters and drawing the creases in their faces, I'm obsessed with wrinkles and withered faces.
