Example text

I don't usually mean for anyone to see them; they are usually only meant to be done. The materials used to create a drawing are intimately tied to the character of the work. When working from the model, I most frequently use a more tonal medium like compressed or vine charcoal, Conté crayon, graphite stick or Nupastel, though sometimes a sharp graphite pencil is better for smaller drawings. Depending on the drawing, I also enjoy using subtractive methods that require different types of erasers.

I often draw people and give them the drawing. Sometimes, in turn, they draw me. Always, we are able to communicate through the process, even if we don't speak one another's language.

Often, when I travel to other countries, I find that drawing is a good way to connect with people — a way that transcends language, age, class and nationality. I often draw people and give them the drawing.
