Before i give my life story i just wanted to highligtht that my drawings will mainly consist of graphite. And will encompass a wide variety of different 'fanart' especially sci-fi, games and comic book characters,aAs well as traditioal portraits (which is not my strong point yet).

Now for my life story. I have been drawing and loved art for as long as i can remember and graduated with a degree in 'Product Design' 13 years ago. And I also had my comics strip published in a national U.K newspaper when i was only 15. But for reasons that are way to complicated to go into here, i abruptly stopped drawing. And all self belief and confidence in my drawing abilties vanished which left me having no interest in art or design and I subsequently did not draw for a full 11 years.

But in mid 2012 i had an urge to draw again so opicked up my bic biro pen and haven't really stopped. And I loved using all types of pen's (hence my name) to draw, with my favourite pens originally being 'bic pens', 'magic markers' and 'rotring isograph pens'. But haveing started using graphite in sept 2012, it has now overtaken them and has now become my favourite medium to use.

I am only now at a point (since my spiderman drawing) where i should have been, due to neglecting my skills for 11 years. But i am making up for lost time and drawing every day and will not be happy till my work is up to the standard of some other incredible artists on DA, like 'Angelstorm-82' . So to all the other amazing artist on here thanks for the inspiration that you give me.

These portraits are brilliant :) They really demonstrate the wonderful effects and such that can achieved with charcoal.

Great art. I can't find the cartridge paper local, in the US :-( A heads up. I found a hard carbon pencil works great with graphite. I will enjoy greatly looking through your gallery.

I use technical pens and have a similar story as yours. I have a private site and there is about a twenty year gap between my work. I have some stuff from 1992 and then I did a few things in 2011 or so.

I have an earlier gap from like 1983 until the pieces in 1992. I may be a bit older than you. Life intervened. It is good to see you doing what you enjoy. Never let anyone take that from you. Put up some of your pen work.
