The Early Years

The two felt tip ink and watercolor drawings below were made in high school and changed how I saw and drew from tightly constrained lines to loose and free lines. The experience was magical and resulted from a patient and awesome art teacher. Note the wrinkled paper and large sheets of aged watercolor paper that have become brittle with time.
I pursued pencil after high school and have continued enjoying the limitless potential of pencil drawing to this day.
