Ink Drawings by Valdyr

I’ve shared quite a bit of my graphic design and scenic painting over the years, but it’s been awhile since I’ve featured my ink drawings in any meaningful way. I’ve done a particular form of abstract ink drawings since high school, and I attempt to get a little work done on any number of works-in-progress each week. Starting in early 2024, I plan to start releasing my work as a limited edition NFT series under my online handle as Valdyr on the Solana-based platform Solarplex.

As mentioned above, I started drawing in high school, and even had some of my early work published in the school literary and artwork magazine. I continued on throughout college, though my doodles there were more of a way to take a break from my other artwork – namely, the theatrical design work I was completing for my studies.

In the end, up until recently, my ink drawings were intended as more of a release and distraction rather than a focus in and of themselves. However, a few years ago I had to have surgery on my dominant elbow, and I was afraid afterwards that I would never have the same physical dexterity after healing. One of my featured drawings below was proof that I could hold a pen still enough to create.

A few years later, a second blow came down when I was diagnosed with a neurological disorder that causes my hands to shake. At this point in time, each piece I produce is both practice and proof that I can keep creating my art.

I’m looking forward to sharing my work in new ways in 2024!
