I want my drawing to be fast. I think planning and sketch work are important, and a good thing, but they give me the creeps and my patience soon runs out. What drives me is the feeling I get when a picture is finished. It’s the best feeling in the world, and the reason I’m attending this college is to make sure I experience this feeling as often as possible.
Marathon runners are chasing another feeling, but it is maybe similar. A feeling of managing something almost superhuman – of beating yourself. My project is about a marathon. For a brief period I’ll be drawing more than I’ve ever done before. That’s my marathon.
