G. Eddie Guidry’s series of architectural drawings a diligently filled with endless streams of pillars, archways, and other structural details. We like the time and energy put into these and the amount of focus they must have taken.
You can probably spend just as much time pouring over all the details and imagining what goes on in the world he’s created. We take a look a look at some drawings that have been amazingly done in sketchbooks as well as some of the larger drawings as he tells us more.
The scrapes series is an exploration of shape and form that could be viewed as architectural but are mostly otherworldly. I try to only start with a vague vision and let the drawing form itself and me.
I draw using 2mm leads, via standard drafting lead holders, and color pencils. I draw on an aged drafting table inherited from my father who previously used it to design drilling wells on in the 80s. My “studio” is in a hall attached to a “dining” area (which doubles as a hall again) in a small loft condo in New Orleans’ Warehouse District. My technique is persistence.
