I am not a fluent illustrator or painter. Still, I sometimes enjoy it. When feelings fly high inside my mind I use art as a form of theraphy. Other times I have a job that needs to get done. Preferably I work on large papers or canvases without fussing around with details too much.
Reconstructive drawings - when one picture speaks a thousand words
Being an archaeologist I am sometimes asked by colleagues to draw reconstructions of how a certain place might have looked at a certain time. This is a very difficult task; one where you can not but fail. The archaeological text talks about results, findings and interpretations. It is a very unprecise buisness, with only a few details known. Making the place come back to life again in a picture requires detailed knowledge, one which not even the most distinguished professor possesses. Still, reconstructive drawing has its points. I do my best.
Come evening, sitting on the sofa, relaxing, I sometimes draw on my iPad. This style is more related to my old profession as a fashion designer and also a style that comes more natural to me.
