about The Artist's Eyes

Male

"So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them" (Genesis 1:27).

"Art is medicine for my heart.
The Bible is medicine for my mind.
Gospel music is medicine for my soul.
Nature is medicine for my spirit.
Medicine is medicine for my body."
- Yours truly

WHO AM I?
I am a 31-year-old non-professional yet highly passionate, mostly self-taught, and sometimes enormously ambitious artist and aspiring novelist based near Seattle, Washington.

HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN DRAWING?
I have been drawing my whole life, yet before discovering Model Society in early 2016 I had never focused on the figure in my work. That discovery was a turning point in my artistic life. After seeing so many profoundly beautiful images of the female figure - some that almost moved me to tears - I thought to myself, "If I can make just one image that makes another person feel the way I feel right now, I'll count myself blessed." I have been pursuing that challenge ever since.

WHAT ARE MY WORKING METHODS?
I create graphite pencil/charcoal drawings of the female form and occasionally write poetry that comes to me as I draw. I work primarily from photo references, though I absolutely love collaborating with models whenever I can (it's way more fun, and models always have great stories). One day I'd love to have a three-part collaboration between myself, a photographer and a model: three art forms joining forces to make something incredible.

WHAT ARE MY ARTISTIC GOALS?
My goal with my art is very simple: I seek to create beauty out of beauty. To me, there is nothing on this earth more beautiful, more lovely or more artistically inspiring than a woman, and I want to make art that communicates how much I love, cherish and adore women in all their mystery, glory and wonder (normally I'd express it in words, but, as I learned a long time ago, art expresses what words can't).

WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING ON MODEL SOCIETY?
I now have the chance to tell all of you amazing artists how much your work moves me and inspires me to not only be a better artist, but a better person. I only hope my work will touch my fellow artists the same way their work has so deeply touched me. Thank you all!

WHAT ELSE DO I HAVE TO SAY?
That about sums it up. To all my fellow artists in the meantime, keep learning, keep creating, keep loving and keep making this world a better place with your creations.

P.S. I want to thank various Model Society photographers and models who granted me permission to use their imagery for inspiration in the early days of my figure drawing. May you all have great success in your artistic journeys!

  • Every shoot with Poppyseeddancer is awesome! Add another model like Iamshapeshifting, double the awesomeness, Btw this was a remote shoot with them in Denmark.

  • Merci

    Lorsque Courbet décide de peindre l’Origine du Monde en 1866 il ne pensait certainement pas qu’elle deviendrait une des pièces majeure du musée d’Orsay.
    Qui peut être le modèle ? Pas de tête ! une personnalité de la bourgeoisie parisienne ? certain parle même de sa cousine ? ou comme il se faisait beaucoup à l’époque une prostitué. Beaucoup d’artistes on recours aux femmes « de petite vertu » comme modèle pour leurs dessins érotiques Toulouse Lauterc en est le meilleur exemple. Picasso en 1906 a eu recourt a 6 prostituées pour son tableau les Demoiselles d’Avignon.
    Quelle intimité Courbet a t-il eu avec son modèle ?

  • Beautiful work!

  • Ah, so there you are! :-) Of course, your work is beautiful. It's because of my wife's taking live figure drawing workshops at the local college that I was inspired to photograph nudes. By the way, I see you live in Seattle. That's ground zero for the coronavirus. I have a good friend up in Edmunds. Stay safe!

    • Much thanks! That's great that you and your wife both do figurative art. Thanks for your concern (I can't wait for this thing to end). Stay safe as well!
