The Dying Media of Hollis Brown Thorton

Is it pure nostalgia that draws me to these marker drawings by artist, Hollis Brown Thorton? Well, yes AND mad respect because if you've ever tried any form of marker rendering, you know how hard this is to do. More here.

  1. I haven't marker rendered anything since art school graduation in 1987. I kind of miss it and yes, it is a very difficult thing to do well. Thanks for sharing this. Makes me want to break out the old Design markers again with their toxic unique smell.

  2. KC - That's the smell of my childhood. My Dad was a master with the magic markers. He used to be able to turn out a storyboard in no time flat. Thanks for the comment!
