Pencil drawing is my favorite art form.
Something about it is so raw and constructive
Some artists like it because its erasable, my style is straight forward and I will admit it I do not like to erase, and I draw fast.
I would always draw a lot as a kids, more than anyone I ever met. My mother always made it easy for me to stick with it whether it be encouragement or supplies. I never stopped. I draw every day whether it be doodling when I am on the phone, or even life drawing classes which I attend or teach regularly. There is something about pencil drawing that can never be replaced. From the fact that there is an art to sharpening a pencil to the fact that it is every students first tool. I never think I will get tired of drawing.
Every Project starts with a pencil
I begin every project with pencil on paper, and If i don’t I use it to take notes to then begin in the computer. If I shoot a movie, I draw out the story boards with a pencil, if I am doing a website I make my initial sketches with a pencil. Especially with a painting I plan the whole journey with a pencil.
Want to learn?
I teach pencil drawing classes. I am inspired from the first artist who actually trained me professionally. Edward Gazi showed me how to draw the same way for 5 years, I am in the process of continuing his knowledge to my other students. The method is straight forward and it has proven results. If you ever considered being a ninja with a pencil please inquire below. Since pencil drawing is my favorite medium I am passionate about spreading the knowledge.
