Putting their art on the line
For all that it is fundamental to any visual art-form, be it illustration, animation, fashion or furniture design, sculpture or installation, architecture… anything in fact that is made to be looked at, there are some creatives who specialise in lines, who use them them as the principal springboard for their work.
The boldness, or delicacy, with which lines are drawn can be indicative of innate artistic talent, because the line is the basic building-block of all art. Even those artists who do not first sketch out what they want to paint but straightaway apply paint to canvas usually “outline” the overall appearance of their imagined concept before filling in the detail.
