i have always been drawn to pen and ink illustrations, and these ballpoint pen works by new york artist hope gangloff are no exception. these pieces are drawn from photos and recreated with details that are soft but still precise and complete. her vivid scenes of daily life, both in palette and composition, take me to a place where i have been before at some point. a place where i felt liberated, hard, youthful and wise all at the same time.
the combination of ennui and casual confidence within her subjects is just so excellent.
