Working Drawings Exhibition

I'm exhibiting some work in this show...

Working Drawings
London Gallery West
Private View Thursday 22 March, 5 – 8pm

Group show featuring: Austin Cowdall, Ed Fella, Alan Fletcher, Abram Games, Ken Garland, Milton Glaser, David Hughes, Stephen Smith and Saul Steinberg amongst others.

"Curated by Lee Ford, London Gallery West is delighted to be hosting the Working Drawings exhibition, bringing together image makers and visual communicators to reveal drawing practice as integral to the creative process; as a means for exploring and articulating thoughts, ideas and concepts.

The exhibition celebrates how drawing can be used in a number of ways and settings – and showcases rarely seen glimpses into the working methodology of an international roster of artists, designers, illustrators and typographers. From tentative ideas development on the back of a London bus ticket, to rough designs, layouts and graphics: the work is initial, immediate and presented as an honest and creative visual response to a design problem."

“Drawing is the best way of understanding what you are looking at. In most cases, I have discovered that it is impossible to see anything until you have made a deliberate attempt to draw it.”

Milton Glaser
