Here is an update on my drawing of Emanuele Dascanio 11 x 14 graphite pencil on Bristol Smooth paper. Often times I’m asked why I draw the way I draw. I am influenced by so many artists, Emanuele being one of them. Emotion, light and shadow is important to me. When I draw, it’s a process that is very personal for me. It’s a time when I truly look deep within myself, which can be very emotional and sometimes painful for me. Each mark I make is a step along my personal journey of healing and self discovery. I try to pour all of my own emotion into each piece I do. It is my goal to not only make a connection with my subject but also a connection with those who view my work.
