Drawing is a form of visual art that makes use of any number of drawing instruments to mark a two-dimensional medium. Common instruments include graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, wax color pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels, various kinds of erasers, markers, styluses, and various metals (such as silverpoint). An artist who practices or works in drawing may be called a draftsman or draughtsman.
A small amount of material is released onto the two dimensional medium, leaving a visible mark. The most common support for drawing is paper, although other materials, such as cardboard, plastic, leather, canvas, and board, may be used. Temporary drawings may be made on a blackboard or whiteboard or indeed almost anything. The medium has been a popular and fundamental means of public expression throughout human history. It is one of the simplest and most efficient means of communicating visual ideas.The relatively easy availability of basic drawing instruments makes drawing more universal than most other media.
In 2000 Dan was hired to produce a show of his numerous drawings. In order to ‘flesh’ out the exhibit he took one drawing , drew it out on four pieces of plywood, cut out the shapes and added a top circle and adjustable legs. Black paint markers defined the drawing. This 11 foot tall statue has been exhibited in 4 galleries including the Rhode Island School of Design museum.
