Ensor made me do it
So Kelly gave me this great book on james ensor for christmas. this guy is really wacky and i love it. his work has inspired me in painting and now his drawings are getting me into drawing again. painting has always been my pleasure and i have yet to lose intrest in it or at least take a break from it. however, this hasn't been the case for drawing. i have gone through month long periods of not drawing and not missing it a single bit. after looking at ensor's drawings i am refreshed. they incorporate observation soaked in imagination. He masterfully fuses reality with the spiritual and metaphysical. Its wonderful. Here are a few images from the book. ensor has made me excited about drawing again!
