I'm finding myself wanting to spend less and less time in front of the computer these days. I'm less inclined to the clean lines of vectors and leaning towards the hand drawn/ handmade aesthetic. I'm finding inspiration in artists who really draw with beautiful fluidity. I just found Chow Martin on Society 6 and his work just makes me want to pick up a pencil and get to it.

I think it's something about the dynamics about the work I'm getting drawn to. Maybe I'm drawn to what I feel I lack. I love this 'Amelie' preliminary sketch by Nimit Malavia.

I think it's the sense of kineticism and the line variation or maybe a combination of stillness and movement, or even imagined movement, as if there were more than one time and space. One in reality and one in imagination.

What Develops Julian Callos

I guess I go through periods of stylistic obsessions like most artists but I'm feeling like the last 9 years I've been trying to consolidate the desire to draw the realistic with fantastic and I'm finally feeling like I'm almost at a point where I'm getting there. Not that I ever want to really find that I've resolved it because I think I'd bore myself.
