DESCRIBE YOUR TECHNIQUE
I think a lot of the time I'm dealing with control; how lax is the line, how far from perceived reality, how structured is the application of colour. The power in creating your own imagery is the ability to edit the experiences you are drawing from and when you're successful you allow others to see things in the way you do. In practise I use ALOT of Fabiano 90gsm paper, my Rotring Isograph pen (0.35) and me and my scanner are pretty tight!
PICK A WORD BEGINNING WITH C THAT SUMS YOU UP
I grew up in Camden and would go in here once a week - never buying anything but just being totally transfixed by all the colours. The shop was like a totally foreign and exciting colourful, crazy synthetic world. Needless to say in hindsight I was clearly a bigger fan than I knew.
