WORDS FROM NEMO
The focus of my art is not the subject, but the method by which I constructed it. As a trained architectural draftsman grown weary of computer aided drafting, I had the desire to put my manual drawing skills to work. Drafting requires a steady hand, mastery of one’s tools and patience, as does my art work. I use various line weights combined with multiple styles of circles, spirals and swirls to compose the subject. The entire image is drawn freehand with number two pencil and an accent of colored pencil on vellum drafting paper. I choose my subjects due to their beauty, but for me the real beauty is found in the complexity of details made with the most primitive of tools.
