There’s a certain affinity for textiles and all things blue at Yatzer these days, so these mesmerising pen drawings by French artist Jonathan Bréchignac seem right at home here, continuing the theme. Their creator is Jonathan Bréchignac, art director of Joe&Nathan studio in Paris, France, who chose to create his seductive drawings on paper using just simple Bic pens. Each ”carpet” can take up to eight months to complete, while the very first one was in the making for a year and a half. (…)
As I grew older, I had to fulfill the dream within me which was producing art. I went to the University, studied art, got my degree and decided to have a feel of the reality on the field of practice before I plunged into a Masters of Fine Arts degree. I eventually got disappointed going in with so much energy and optimism but with no funds. But then, I had a pen and paper, a perfect media, I thought. That was how it all begun. And I am doing very well now.
There is no name for the style of drawing I do. There are a lot of lines and minute squares. I have not named my style as I will always change it, I didn’t want to keep to one confinement. It’s a freestyle.
I work in the evening, late in the night where I can draw without interruption. I can come back to a painting after a long time, unless I am commissioned to do a piece for a client. I do what I feel like doing at what time. But roughly, it takes about 3-4 days to make a piece.
Worked fine with my right hand, but when I came to use my left hand my writing came out looking like the work of a complete imbecile. I can only assume Bic have created a right-handed only pen, and would caution left-handers to “try before you buy”.
Yeah another one of these - was waiting for a friend and this popped out. Didn’t do it from memory! I had a pic of this boy on a book. Done with BIC (black and red). The red BIC is to make the first stage of sketch
This is a Bubo bubo (Eagle Owl) sketch. Even though I always prefer to draw them from live models, there is not crime in doing it from the photo. It is a good practice to get familiar with the animal’s proportions and all before moving to the real model.
