ARTIST LOOKSEE: KAGAN MCLEOD
I love ink drawings, I love it's subtle nuances in depth and how it says so much with so little.
Kagan McLeod is a very skilled illustrator and his art has all the beautiful storytelling depth I love in ink drawings.
He has really inspired me to take up ink drawings again. Ink requires real confidence in the line you want to draw. There is no apple - z for ink! Check out his life drawings! I may try to bring some inks for the Thursday life drawing sessions and see how I go. If I can get one passable work I'll be very happy.
I wonder if I like ink so much because I tend to be tentative with my drawings which results in a messy scribbly 'style'. I really admire the confidence that ink requires; there is a strength in the line work when the artist is confident in what they are doing. I can't wait for the next session; I desperately need the practice. Plus it's my kind of meditation!
