Artist Spotlight: Kelly Blevins

A selection of drawings by artist Kelly Blevins, who uses a cross-hatch method and doesn’t use blending tools. She says “I like to get intimate with the detail. It allows me to escape, think and analyze life. I hope to one day work on a drawing so big it would take me two years to finish. A long meditative state, basically.” See more drawings below.

Each week our members share their work with us and we highlight the best of these submissions as Editors’ Picks. You can learn more about becoming a member.
