I have been sorting through a lot of my really old art work and have realised that I have this love affair with lines. I have come to the conclusion that basically I am not a painterly artist (if artist is the right word) and although love colours do love drawing lines and then filling them with colours.
On this basis I don't know whether I call myself at artist or an illustrator? To the outside world an artist paints, an illustrator draws. What do you think on this subject?
Whilst sorting througth I came across some line drawings and characters I had done about 8 years ago, so I may reinvent them for future projects. Because I was teaching glass painted card making I developed a whole load of simple designs for my classes.
The following is an updated line drawing I did quickly yesterday based on a design I already had. I will probably play with this using colour.
It would be interesting to read your thoughts on artists v illustrators.
