"The pen knows where it’s going and I’ve got very good at following."
I find Shantell Martin's instinctive, almost zen-like, approach to drawing so inspiring. A true example of working from the inside out.
"I come to a drawing with intention, a good intention to make something work. I feel like I’m doing what I’m meant to do, and how I’m meant to be connecting with the world.
You know, I get asked ‘how do I plan my composition?’ And I say, ‘I don’t plan. It just works.’ And I don’t know how it works, or why it works.
I trust in the pen and I trust in this experience. And every time I step back, I secretly say to myself, ‘It works.’”
Trust in your creative instinct, it knows what it’s doing.
