The New Mothers” graphite, charcoal & contè on paper, based on a photograph by
Sally Mann (“Immediate Family“, 2014 reissue by Aperture).

Working on this drawing gave me more peace and solitude I could have ever hoped for. A strong focus on every single stroke of a pencil can make the world disappear. I knew that all along but with this tiny picture the feeling was so much stronger – an amazing experience.”

People often wonder how I draw. Here is a brief example of my general approach towards graphite and coal drawing – (1) template coal, graphite and chalk sketch, (2) a graphite shading pass and (3) a coal shading pass. The template sketch is a separate drawing altogether and serves as a guide in the drawing process.
