Artist Javier Pérez finds inspiration for his drawings by taking the everyday items around him – be that a spare battery, fresh pencil shavings, a roll of tape, or even a simple paper clip – and thinking about them differently. We often look at things for what they are, not for what they can be, and Pérez breaks that mold in his drawings.
In the pursuit of drawing creativity, we’re running a contest!
