And you know my name is Simon…..

Drawing, it’s a funny process. Sometimes your eyes work with your brain and hands together and sometimes things feel disconnected. The thing I love about drawing is that on a two dimensional surface you can create a miniature world. If a drawing is successful then the viewer has a gut reaction that instantly connects them to the piece. Adversely, if the viewer does not connect, there is often a stronger reaction of dislike. Whichever happens at least there is a reaction, a connection between the art and viewer; and that my friends is magical.

I have been drawing a lot lately and have felt very good at the reaction to my ball point pen drawings. They started out as a way to get my hands moving and have developed into something all by themselves. If you like em- thanks a million; they hold a special place in my heart.
