This is my idea of how humans will evolve. It feels like we are becoming so entwined with technology that I thought it could be interesting to have the technology as part of our bodies.
The body has also warped, it seems each generation is taller than the last. It was nice drawing something that is quite technological loosely and quickly with the Artline pens, but at the same time it keeps the hand drawn humanity in the drawing. It meant I could get the idea out straight away.
“I draw most of my work with Artliners. I sometimes get funny looks at life drawing when I go there with felt tips, most people have charcoal, pastels or pencils. I have played around with a bunch of differentmediums but I always end up using Artliners. The smooth flow of the pens and putting down something finished straight away is something that I’ve always loved. There is no smudging orrubbing out, what you put down is what you get. I believe over thinking the line or drawing over the top of pencil can make the line lose its power and start to look self-doubting.
I think there is something nice about your first line being your finished line.”
