When I draw I want to create something more intense than life but mirroring it, essentially alive but warped and stroked into something new. Otherwise why draw at all? Working with a tightly limited palette throws the emphasis on the lines, which I want to creak and bulge under the burden of identity and expression. Taut, generous, fine, indulgent lines, trapping men in blank space and making them more real. I draw with a Wacom tablet into Flash, sketching quickly with broad strokes, then developing the finer detail and always sleeping on it before finishing anything. In 2014 I'm moving into sculpture, animation and comics, putting out further issues of my publication Pound Shop and bringing more of the world and myself into my work.
