Beautiful Woman

Artist: Jorge Santiago, Jr., United States
Artist Statement: I enjoy drawing people more than anything, and when I saw this woman at the store I wished I had my sketchbook on me. I drew this after coming home, the image still strong in my mind. I remembered the woman’s outfit, the hair, the expression so strongly; it really made an impression on me. I used a variety of pens for the body and a Pentel Color Brush for the hair. I chose my Stillman & Birn Gamma because I love the character the ivory tone brings to my ink drawings.

SURFACE: Gamma Series – Heavyweight – 150 gsm – Ivory – Medium Grain Finish

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Jorge Santiago Jr. is a comic artist and illustrator who recently earned his MFA from SCAD Atlanta. He is based in Atlanta and can be seen in local cafes with his headphones, drawing people and his comics.
