    Wow! This drawing has been executed with nothing else but a simple ordinary plain biro pen?! How absolutely AMAZING! I was thinking it might have been charcoal, instead. ;-)

    This lion looks really fierce.

    I’m trying my best to figure out how you know exactly where to put lines/marks; and, also, where not to?! But, I guess, what it boils down to is that each artist has their own individual taste/style; that’s why your own marks do seem so very highly ‘unique’ to me.

    You know, I never thought I would seriously buy any artwork from off RedBubble, before; but, looking at this thing; I can’t help thinking to myself I really would like to be able to own a card. I guess, this is going to be my first RedBubble purchase; and, well, you do deserve it. :-)

    Anyway, your art teaches me ‘the way to go’. I sure hope to be able to learn how to draw as well as you do one day; especially, the way you draw faces ever so brilliantly/and, so on.

  • I am in shock….! Good shock that is!
    Thanks for your many compliments and comments… I have not been online for 2weeks and to find this when I returned was just the confidence boost I needed.
    Regarding where I place my marks etc and the use of biro…. I am I printmaker and learnt early on that ‘mistakes’ are inevitable and also hard to correct so one has to work with them. I made a conscious choice to sketch in biro for this very reason as you cannot erase errors and so it is (or was for me) a good tool to sketch / practice drawing with as again.. rather than worry about mistakes work with them and use them to take the drawing in a different direction. I hope this makes sense!

    Hi, thanks very much for your above explanation; yes, it certainly does make a lot of sense to me.

    I mean, myself, I am a self-taught mere ‘amateur’ artist; nowhere near your own high ‘degree’ level of ability; but, one of the things I do notice is that nothing I ever tried creating does not contain, at least, some mistakes; therefore, yes, I agree that you just have to accept mistakes as being a somewhat inevitable part of the creative process; and, just simply continue to try and make the best out of those mistakes; even if that means taking the drawing going in an entirely different direction altogether; than was say your first original idea.

    Hey, by the way, I got your card, recently; and, the lion you drew really does look GREAT! By which I mean to say, it looks as good printed out; as it does on the computer. Actually, maybe, it looks far better now that I own it; because, at least, it’s well and truly portable; which means I can take it along with me placing it anywhere that I please. Thanks, again!

    Sincerely, wish you every good luck and success with selling your work here on RedBubble. ;-)
