Paper Worker

I was going through my rough sketches photo archive...

In view of the fact that I'm almost only using a graphic tablet lately, "real paper", "real pencils" and "real drawings" are on the decrease here.

I don't know but it's somehow sad...

If I recall correctly, some of the sketches here were part of my Nemoland exhibit last year, realised by the Accademia Nemo.

  1. Hi Florian... I have been really interested in getting a graphic tablet but I don't know anything about them. If you don't mind me asking, which one are you using?

  2. Hey Florian, I recently discovered your website and your work, and I really love your art! Thanks for posting all of this!

  3. Hi Dennis, I'm using a Wacom Intuos4.

    Martine, BIG thanks! :)

    Mattia, thanks for the nice comment here! Cheers!

  4. The same with me. Since i work on a Cintiq 21, i use hardly any paper. I love to see the scribbles (especially yours) as much as the final work. I wonder what will remain of the works, using only graphic tablets. But it is sooo handy and quick. At least I leave an extra layer with the scribbles in the fina Photoshop-Files It is also frigthtening how dependent i am working that way. Imagine Wacom would go bankrupt...what would we do? ;)

  5. Rofu, hahaha, right, good point :o) I didn't think of it that way. Thanks for commenting!

  6. Thank you, Michael! Михаил means Michael, no?

  10. ROUGHS! It's a shame that I missed the chance to attent your exhibit and Nemoland last year. Thanks for sharing these photos with us!

  11. IT IS SAD!! I love paper and the feel of a pencil in my hand. It's like hanging out with a good friend.

    Great stuff Florian
