Drawing what we see connects us with your environment. We observe and discover more. And we incorporate those moments within ourselves. Drawings recall memories of our lives in a way no photograph ever can.

And strangely enough, even when you try to “objectively” depict what you see, every drawing reveals something about yourself.

I made a habit out of sending drawings to friends as postcards. An important part of this idea is the loss of control once those pictures disappear into a mailbox. They might be discarded by the recipients or framed and integrated into their homes. They might get damaged or even lost on their journey. I keep nothing but a quick digital snapshot on this website.

  1. So glad to have discovered one of your Medium articles. Thanks for being an inspiration for daily improvement. 🙂 Love your work.

  2. Very inspiring. I too draw at moments, to capture it without a camera. Give a whole new meaning to it. Your post on medium abs the video here is really inspiring me to draw more of such sketches.

  3. I stumbled across your post ‘A quick beginner’s guide to drawing’ on Medium today. I don’t draw but I do take/make photographs and found your post challenging and inspirational. I think that drawing will improve my eye and force me to slow down and really consider my subject, so I am going to give it a go! Thank you for putting your work and ideas out there!
