In drawing this I wanted to capture a sense of the player and the instrument being a single entity. The two are inseparable and that’s where the magic comes from. It strikes me that in life we only tap into the rhythm when we are one with our thoughts, words and our actions. When they are seamless, life happens more easily and in a rhythm that makes sense to us. The focus of this range is to capture the essence of the subject with the minimal use of line. The one line pieces are, as the name suggests, drawn with a single line, the pen or brush never leaving the paper., creating deceptively simple images.

There's two ways of looking at our lives. We can see ourselves as this small little boat bobbing up and down on the huge ocean. I imagine that perspective is daunting especially if you have dreams and aspirations. The other way to look at is that we are in our little boat but we have this expansive ocean in which to roam. Endless possibility and choice that we can only begin to imagine. So if that's you in the little boat, we hope this helps you see the myriad possibilities that you can achieve.
