Anchors Away


When I do a photo shoot for advertising, we always have the best of everything. If I am taking a picture of a shoe, we have stylists there with ten different kinds of laces. Should the laces be like this? Should they be tied? We fuss over every little detail. It always looks perfect. Maybe too perfect. When I draw I want my page to also be nicely designed. It's different though because I want to find and draw something naturally. The way it is. I don't alter scenes that I draw. When I saw this anchor at Yun's friend's house in the Berkshires, I knew it would be a great drawing because of the rope. It was an interesting sort of sculpture sitting next to a mess. I didn't touch the rope of fuss with it to make it look more desirable. If I was doing the same shot for advertising we would have moved that rope for an hour to get it all just right. It would have been a staged, beautifully designed creation of a mess. The way it is drawn now, My pen is the camera and everyday life is the stylist.

I did not recognize anchor either at first moment. Which is not about your sketch but about my speed.
The rope is so detailed.

About this I think exactly like you: or better still, you have cleared up to me what I feel about the choice betweeen photographing or drawing/painting a scene, but I wasn't able to express in a consistent thought. Your drawings are absolutely fantastic! Thank you!

I love the electrical tape at the end of the rope to prevent fraying.
Now that is detail.
