New drawings in 2017

Making drawings in 2017 seems to continue. In the first week I have some time for myself and in that I already started to work on several new ones. Also finished some old ones and published them on the artists portfolio I have online:

When I work on drawings, I always work on several ones. THis gives you an overview of the ones I am currently working on.They will get ready one by one when I finish the small details. When ready, I normally scan them and sometimes publish them on a blog or on other placed. Then they are archives in portfolio’s to keep them dry and dark and safe for the future. Maybe an exhibition one of these days?
