Thoughts about single line ink drawings?

Postby Matt LaCross » Wed Jul 12, 2006 7:46 pm

I was wondering what your thoughts are on quality, content of my sinle line ink drawings. The are all done in a single line, with no sketches and are done by hand. I have been doing shows in Seattle for the past few years, and have not seen many other images like them.

Thank you,

Matt LaCross

Matt,
These are wonderful. They are very aesthetically pleasing. The lines are very clean and I would even describe them as sexy. Very professional. Keep them coming.

best regards,
Joe

I am glad that you both enjoy the images. I draw for about an hour or two everyday. I also own a small gallery in Seattle called the Black Box Gallery. It is a No Fee, No Commission gallery that I started to help other artists gain exposure for their work. I pay for the space, so others can keep the money they make, and put it back into their art. We did over 45+ one night shows last year, and have done a good number of shows this year as well. We never judge any artists work or ability, we just feel that anyone interested in showing their work should have a place that allows them an oppotunity.

Take care,

Matt

Hey Matt. Forgive me if I blanked on the dimensions.
If these pieces are relatively large I could see them having quite an impact.

Do you draw for pleasure or catharsis or commerce or...
What drives you?
What are you inspired by?
I see these as quite iconic in a religious sense or of spiritual
origin. That of course is through my own siphon.

You are from Seattle. Lots of cool and not so cool things
there. or, well anywhere.
I like the flow and I like that there is an
ample amount of Light to balance the Dark.

Just like the universe.
Have you been doing this kind of art since you were young?

I like the hidden imagery and I like the
boldness of the
un
oken line.
What do you use to create the bold and light linework?
A speedball or some similar implement?
Are you perhaps inspired by the tat industry?

:idea:
Sorry for the deluge of questions.
I'll just say that I suppose the next step if there is to
be one would be to tackle a multitude of imagery
into one piece.

There is alot that can be done with these.
Stained Glass, T-shirts etc.

I can feel that this is something you Need to Do.
I can also sense that it gives you comfort and satisfaction.
And that feeling runs deep.

Good for you. Follow that inner voice.
It's a Beautiful visual vocabulary
and should be shared and not sequestered.

Hey, FYI:
I wanted to start a gallery with your kind of model in mind.
I believe that everything is as it needs to be.

Perhaps I could not manifest a place because
you were meant to.

One Love.
Many Blessings.







TO KNOW ME IS TO KNOW THYSELF.
JOY IS WITHIN AND WHEN IT IS SO
IT WILL BE NOT ONLY MANIFESTED
WITHOUT BUT FELT THERE AS WELL.
