Artist & Illustrator:
Part of the "Stones & Bones" Series"I always varied pens but rarely drawing surfaces.
Out of paper for a short time, I turned to the two inert materials: stone and bone.
These inert materials seemed so ordinary!
This is not the case. They are still “living” materials: rough, bold, smooth, cracked, absorbent ….
Taming the variety of surfaces on a volume is a real adventure!
So I put aside the paper and canvas fabric to experiment with new drawing sensations.Hand fits. The fingers feel every bumps. The spirit leaves guided by reliefs. The tip of the pen folds and unfolds. I even had the feeling that this matter thank me for taking care of.
Today, I look differently. I understand them differently.
This experience has enriched my own drawing skills.
The “inert and dead” matter, gave me some lessons.
The following images are the result.”

Usually when we hear or read something new, we just compare it to our own ideas. If it is the same, we accept it and say that it is correct. If it is not, we say it is incorrect. In either case, we learn nothing.

The fight is not between the world and you, but between your ego and your true self. Simply choose to find your true self, and in the end you cannot lose.
