I started sketching when I was 16 years old. I enjoy using mechanical pencils, ballpoint pens, and pigment liners because of their precision.
It’s a diligent practice that improves my visual skills and offers mental relaxation.
Here are a few of my sketches from 2003 – 2018.
I’d like to do more bird drawings in future as they’re my favorite subject.
