The abstract, conte crayon drawings in this group were each inspired by a different artist. I wanted to begin these drawing with someone else's marks, to get away from my own automatic gestures. I came up with the idea of looking at reproductions of one artist's work and copying some their contours, shapes, marks or scribbles in random order on a piece of paper. When the paper felt full enough, I began to work independently. These are the result of this experiment.
