GRAPHITE STUDIES - 2015

This book was a try-out to see what would happen if I combined the drawings of natural objects with graphite studies like the ones I did in the yellow research work.

5 STONES - 2010

The 12x19 drawings already showed a tendency towards series. This work gathered five 12x19 stone drawings from a series of fourteen in an accordeon style book.

ANATOMICAL STUDIES - 2003

The drawings in this book are copies from almost all illustrations in the book Human anatomy for artists by Feher and Szunyoghy. Why did I do all this work? Well, I can't remember anymore...

2003 - 2010 - 2015 - 2018

I love books, I like reading books and I like it even more when I can read a book in a nice chair in a silent room with a hot coffee. But most of all, I like looking at books. That's why over the years I've returned to making visual books once in a while. It turned out it's rather difficult to make a good visual book, but there is something to learn from each failure.
