"This is a digital drawing using the Autodesk Sketchbook app on a smart phone (available for free on the internet... other apps are available). The inexactness of using one's finger to draw on a touchscreen provides a serendipitous quality to mark-making."
"I like the idea of abstracting the figure by a continual process of layering poses drawn from life. This helps remove the restrictive practice of treating a work preciously, allowing me to focus on the process of drawing. I do this as a way of experimenting with mark-making, learning about the materiality of the mediums I'm using, as well as playing around with compositional elements. The resulting artwork tends to have a sense of history and a richly textured appearance, which hopefully looks good and keeps the eye interested."

Colin expects to be doing more work with ink in the future.
