Why did you pick this picture?
I picked this sketch because it was the first drawing in a long time where I didn’t try to overcomplicate or overthink a concept. I just shut my brain off and drew some ridgelines. It was a lot of fun!
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I live near the Great Smoky Mountains and every morning when I’m driving to work, I love to look off in to the distance and stare out at the rolling mountains.
What does this art mean to you?
It is really just a sketch, so there isn’t much meaning behind it. But it means simplicity to me, I guess. In every meaning of the word.
What can you tell us about yourself?
When I’m not drawing or working on my shop, I’m going on adventures with my wife and our dog! We love to hike, kayak, and I like to fish while they sunbathe.
What more can you tell us about your art?
I run a one-man shop, NicksDrawings.com! I sell prints, tees, stickers, and other adventure-inspired gear. I also display my art at several locations in Knoxville. I’m currently branching out and I have products for sale in shops in North Carolina, as well.
