Do you think you would still draw as much as you do now, without getting the attention that you usually get by uploading it to a site like Deviantart.com?

Espen
Artist | Student | Film & Animation
Norway
25 years old. Grew up in Kongsberg. Living in Kristiansand. Bachelor degree in film. Been drawing for as long as I can remember. Left handed. Prefer pen (markers) and paper. Experiments with acrylic paint, watercolours and Adobe Illustrator.

Ambitions: living off of drawing.

Art philosophy: I'm impressed by artists who manages to draw objects and humans just as they are, making their drawings look like photographies. But with all due respect, that approach makes it all predictable in the end.
The art I love the most is simplifying objects and especially humans to almost an abstract level while keeping it/them recognisable. Why draw something a photography can show us, when you can display the inside of your head - your ideas, thoughts, views, perspective and feelings - onto a piece of paper? "Less is more."

"You shall not paint things as you see it, but things as you saw it." - paraphrased quote from Edvard Munch, who took an expressionistic approach when painting his memories.
