Sharpies

December 4, 2007 at 8:55 am (look)

Today I found out about this young artist named Justine Ashbee, and she’s awesome. She makes drawings exclusively with Sharpie markers, and creates undulating forms and tentacles that have amazing folds, volume and motion for being line drawings. Maybe she’s so creative because she’s high from all the Sharpie fumes.

Whatever the reason, I’m a fan. And the fact that she maintains such precision with no chance to erase or cover up a mistake is pretty impressive. I bet her trash can is full of false starts where her marker slipped or something.

Here are a few pieces. (I have to have them this big or else the lines distort.)
