Currently, my study is the human form, the shape and strength and vulnerability of it. Not so much people and personality, but more how each body has its own character. We're used to drawing our information from faces and expressions, but the very tone of the skin and shape of the muscle and bone has its own subtle and private expressiveness, which I love to work with.
