My Bio
Before i give my life story i just wanted to highligtht that my drawings will mainly consist of graphite. And will encompass a wide variety of different 'fanart' especially sci-fi, games and comic book characters,aAs well as traditioal portraits (which is not my strong point yet).

Now for my life story. I have been drawing and loved art for as long as i can remember and graduated with a degree in 'Product Design' 13 years ago. And I also had my comics strip published in a national U.K newspaper when i was only 15. But for reasons that are way to complicated to go into here, i abruptly stopped drawing. And all self belief and confidence in my drawing abilties vanished which left me having no interest in art or design and I subsequently did not draw for a full 11 years.

But in mid 2012 i had an urge to draw again so opicked up my bic biro pen and haven't really stopped. And I loved using all types of pen's (hence my name) to draw, with my favourite pens originally being 'bic pens', 'magic markers' and 'rotring isograph pens'. But haveing started using graphite in sept 2012, it has now overtaken them and has now become my favourite medium to use.

I am only now at a point (since my spiderman drawing) where i should have been, due to neglecting my skills for 11 years. But i am making up for lost time and drawing every day and will not be happy till my work is up to the standard of some other incredible artists on DA, like 'Angelstorm-82' . So to all the other amazing artist on here thanks for the inspiration that you give me.

I've had confirmation that I will be having a further 2 'solo' exhibitions' this year that's on top of the one that I'm having in August(20-22 drawings per show).

After practiseing for what feels like an eternity, 2014 is finally the year that I will be turning my love of art into a full-time career. And I will be showing my work to the artworld and exhibiting my work at local galleries for the very first time. My first real group exhibition is actually this Friday the 10th Jan and I'm exhibiting 3 of my drawings ' Despair', 'Sikh Warrior' and 'Alfred'. All of which I had done specifically for this exhibition, but I had kept it quite until I got conformation on some bigger news. Which is that after waiting what felt like forever I finally got the amazing news today that a proposal i put forward for my

Over the last few weeks I’ve been getting lots of requests for tips and advice. So I thought instead of answering each one I will give an overall guide to what I’ve learnt over the last year using graphite. And some of the things I’m going to say may sound very obvious but I’m trying to cater for artists of all levels so just ignore the bits you already know (I apologise for how long this is). But before I go on I must point out though, that I am no expert and this is just what I’ve found works for me so may not work for everyone.  And I have only really started getting used to using graphite pencils recently, a
