I thought that in order to be a true artist I needed to be a painter and I tried for a very long time to be a painter before coming to the realization that I just wasn’t—my medium had always been a pencil and paper.
Isaac Hastings, an emerging Utah artist who works out of a studio in Poor Yorick, does a lot with his pencil and paper. He designs tattoos, album covers and illustrations for events and publications. That in addition to creating his own artwork, and looking for inspiration in bookmatched sections of wood. It may have something to do with the reminder he has written on his studio floor: less talk, more work.
