Derek Albeck's Graphite DrawingsIllustration // Tuesday, 23 Apr 2013
Derek Albeck is an artist based in LA who draws faces made of flannel shirts, friends with shaky faces and rainbows. He's incredibly facile with a graphite pencil, and these large drawings are even more impressive in person. Albeck says that he spends his time playing cornhole, searching for Chupacabras and he can hardly hear out of his right ear. Albeck is a breath of fresh air in the contemporary art world. His drawings are familiar, friendly and thought-provoking at the same time.
