Johann and John are drawings made both with phthalo blue ink applied by a narrow tipped technical pen. Although made using the same process the drawings vary slightly from each other in tone and density, as the titles, a German and British version of the same name reflects, they are fundamentally different. Johann is drawn with a 0.35mm drawing nib, whereas John is drawn with a 0.25mm nib. The process of drawing, i.e. applying fine marks in a crisscross method until entirely covering the picture space, is as much part of the content, in that it requires a time of complete concentration. I have to let the technical pen merely hover over the paper and make drawing marks otherwise the extremely thin tip of the pen breaks. When I work on these drawings I like to think of myself as a machine. I set myself time to draw and become immersed in the process.
