A Heart for the Day of Hearts
I drew this heart as a gift to give friends we were joining for dinner on Valentine’s Day. It’s inspired by line work I revisited last week as I worked on a commission that combines paper cut and drawing. I decided to shoot a hyperlapse of the work in progress and shared it on Instagram.
It’s fascinating to me to watch my drawing skills in action at a speeded up pace. It takes away all the long pauses between making marks as I think about the flow of lines across the page and what my next move should be. My line work is exact and seems super confident in a way it does not feel as I’m doing it. Watching hyperlapse videos of my own work makes me better appreciate the value of my own skill.
