Jesse Kidd, self proclaimed artist based in East Gippsland.
My common scope of practice is Pen and Ink, but I love to dabble in other mediums as well. I try to achieve tonal value, primarily by creating work in black and white. I feel it has a vintage appeal to it in the final outcome and I am fond of the traditional aspect of creating work by hand opposed to falling into the digital side of creating artwork.
Although by saying that, I have been coloring in work digitally for a finer result that leaves less room for potential error and essentially produces a ‘slicker’ final outcome. I am heavily influenced by quirky cartoon based illustrations with a realistic appeal. My subject matter usually reflects on whatever seems to be happening during my creative outbursts.
Humor for myself has always been a great leveler, and making a person smile or laugh from my work brings me the most joy. Music also has a huge influence on myself, whether it be creating music or working on bits and pieces that are music related.
