Words from the curator:
Artist Ste7en Lefcourt knocks another one out with a design that's more than meets the eye...
What inspired you to make this piece?
I have an older brother who was always into cars. He had a lot of the classics over the years and even restored a few himself. I was never much into cars but I wanted to do a tee design he might appreciate, and then I came up with this idea.
What's your favorite subject to draw?
Not so much a subject, but I love taking lots of smaller objects to create bigger or hidden imagery. Collage style illustrations.
Did you study art formally?
No. I was never able to because of a condition with my drawing hand /wrist. I was accepted to the art school where I wanted to go, but found out a week after my interview there that my condition would be severely worsened by the 3 year intensive course I was supposed to go for.
What's your drawing process like?
I draw like a sculptor sculpts. I create an entire image and keep refining it until it looks like I pictured in my head. A lot of people will work on a small piece at a time, draw a very intricate head, then add another piece, but I take an entire block of imagery and work on everything in levels as I move from less to more detailed.
What's the weather like in the Northeast these days?
Global warming has really improved it this winter. I am really appreciative of that because I despise the cold. Thanks China.
