About the artist
Words from the curator:
Artist Iain Macarthur wows the masses yet again with this ridiculously sweet skudoodle (skull doodle)!
What subject do you enjoy drawing most?
I prefer drawing portraits in my time just because i love spending time on making it look like a photo and also adding the patterns into it so that it looks unusual and surreal, i enjoy doing this kind of technique.
What tools do you usually draw with?
I mostly draw with different sizes of pigment pens so that i can get depth in detail when im doing a illustration. though its a bit of a time consuming process but i love it! i have alot of patients.
How long, on average, does it take you to create a piece?
Depending on the size of the piece that im drawin itll take like 2 or 3days if its a big scale drawing. A4 size drawings take like 4 or 5 hours.
Do you listen to music when drawing? If so, what?
I always listen to music when im drawing :D. keeps my focused and motivated in drawing big detailed drawings. i pritty much listen to anything has a good beat. at the moment the artists im listening to is Mumford and sons, yeah yeah yeahs, biffy clyro, two door cinema club, the kills, band of skulls,yeasayer, at the drive-in, daft punk and four tet.
