A couple of my fav views sketched around the serene lake como last month. all my travel sketches can be found at tsabe.co.uk/abeoutdoors
menaggio lake front and villa balbianello in lenno sketched above. most of my travel destinations are - i'm not ashamed to say - born of movie inspiration! star wars attack of the clones & casino royal both filmed scenes at villa balbianello - a spellbinding place.
Hi lovely people! i've recently created two libraries at www.tsabe.co.uk/early-drawings for my archive drawings and sketches, from 2003 (aged 12) through to 2017. above are sketchbook pages from 2009 & 2011. i love looking at other artists early work, if you have some you'd like to share dm me or tag me in it! 💓 link in bio
I spoke with @instagram about my career and my animated portraiture - check out their insta story today for more videos and behind the scenes shots.
whether you've been following me for years on instagram or discovered me today - hello and thank you for all the wonderful support! 🖐🏽 via instagram : “i adore drawing. i’m obsessed with it,” says t.s abe (@ts_abe ), a 28-year-old british artist who creates short looping videos of her pencil-and-paper self-portraits. “i’d been making traditional pencil self-portraits for over a decade before i decided to pick up my camera and shoot with the intention of creating a portrait in motion,” says abe, who lives in west london. “i shoot the footage of whatever i’ve seen in my head, play around with it on my computer to find the perfect loop, and then draw the frames—typically six to 20 of them.”
she’s been a full-time illustrator for more than three years, but abe doesn’t take the creative freedom for granted. “making a living from drawing is still mind-blowing to me,” she says. “drawing is so comforting — being able to distill the peculiar and confusing experience of life into something exacting.”
I discovered bourdain at a time in my life when i had such a terrible relationship with food and was in much need of a sense of wonder. thank you for sharing your adventures with us and i'm sorry you were suffering.💔
