Keeping stuff is good #21

From 2007 #22

Again, from that sketchbook I recently unearthed and opened. This one is a drawing of a male model, more or less like a statue in semi-abstract style. You may note that there was no regard for proper proportion or perspective. The focus was on the overall design of the page. Black and blue crayon. Like all the other drawings in this series, these two are drawn on 11 x 14 archival, Aquabee paper.

About mmgilbert

I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
