I am often asked what I draw with

Photography is an immediate reaction. Drawing is a meditation.

(Henri Cartier-Bresson)

I draw like other people bite their nails.



  1. Hi Ian,

    Great sketch! I'm always keen to know what mediums artists use for the sketchbooks/journals. I watched your interview with Danny Gregory yesterday and enjoyed it very much and I found your blog via that interview. I thought your name sounded familiar so checked my art book shelves and, sure enough, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I have a couple of your books - Easy Acrylics and Acrylic Mixing Directory. Mind you, my acrylic art has taken a back seat since I discovered illustrated journaling.

    I look forward to following your blog.

  2. I too discovered your blog through Danny Gregory's interview.
    What a treat. You've reached out and re-inspired a poor soul trapped in the greyness of winter.

  3. "I draw like other people bite their nails." hope this ok by you, but will use this on a spirituality board in the unit where I work (acknowldging you as my source!" Thanks; by the way, I'm a great fan of your drawings.

  4. I too must use that Picasso comment. I think your work is exquisite.
