Marker & Pencil Drawings:
I spend a lot of time working in either pencil or marker. It's where I began as an artist and I feel very at home in this medium. I tend to usually do a base drawing in pencil to start, very lightly, so I know where to plot my marker outlines to best convey what I'm trying to register with the viewer. I very seldom work directly from a photo, and instead prefer to use several sources as reference but ultimately come up with my own composition and design for the piece.
