For all the people who ask me the same questions - All my black and white works are done only with INK and PEN .. - NO PENCIL WORKS and I don't even have pencil sketches. I don't work from images, The only work i've done from photographs are - Shelby, Coke and this Last drawing of the GIRL (Eden's Apple) , but only the contour as I took the photograph of her 7 years ago and the final image was only outlines to make her look like a statue, so I had to make all the shadowing myself on the drawing, just using my logic on a human body - also no mask, apple or shawl was in the photograph, every pattern and design you see is made up in the process just like my Chess pieces and rest of my works!! It took me 13 months to finish this piece not because I was taking my time, but because it was impossible to work 48 hours a day. and for all of those saying I should contact Copic, very sweet of you to think that highly of my work, really 😘 and guess what - they sponsored me for my last 4 work, I am very thankful and grateful as they never sponsor any artist. I take nothing for granted and in my 4 year career as an artist I got help sadly only from 2-3 people, so when all you amazing artists DM me for advise , I don't know what to tell you, everything you see is only me, no manager or agent or daddy's money (like most of the "artists" now days, yes not sorry for being honest) - I hope I answered to a lot of you and I hope your adventure as an artist will be with people who will help instead of hating and your parents will have art contacts to make it easier for you 🙌🏼
I loved doing a project for kids. Soze Gallery provided products from Blick such as markers, pencils, paints, etc.. we had food and drinks for everyone. Parents enjoyed themselves helping the kids to color some of Illustrations made by me on paper and everyone was allowed to take home with them everything they used and played with at the kids camp.
we also had a free ice cream truck! amazing! ( us adults were more happy about it I think :) )
Hopefully by the end of the year I will have another kids camp for the little ones. Will keep it updated.
Enjoy the VIdeo.
