Pencil drawing ‘Ritual’ by Jono Dry

Time lapse of the process behind the drawing ‘Ritual’ 165cm x 114cm, Pencil on paper.

I spent around 300 hours on this piece. I hope this time lapse can give you some insight into my process and technique.

I found myself intimidated by the task of naming this piece. It’s an interesting part of the process to give your work a title. It’s this opportunity to use words to add to it, to give it a nudge in a direction. You want to do it justice and not limit its potential by putting it into a box. But the more I tried to give it something with words, the more I found I was just revealing my own limitations towards the work. Once you let a work go and share it, something amazing happens. It becomes this small puzzle piece in other people’s creative process. They send back their interpretations, their words which are far beyond what I could have imagined. Thank you all for being a part of this ritual and sharing your thoughts about the work with me.
