Frodo From the Shire

by bitten

Drawing of Frodo from Tolkiens books. The portrait is one in a series of drawn portraits of famous movie characters that I am doing. The motivation behind is a fascination of fan culture. The confusion of reality and fiction, where you as spectators often attach same personal features possessed by the character they are playing to the actor.



Hello. My name is Bitten Kari. I'm a Teacher and self taught artist living in Denmark. I like to draw portraits with pen and paper. I find portraits very interesting and challenging, since the human eye is very skilled when it comes to recognizing and observing human features. Though I also draw other things. Another thing I enjoy is working with acrylic paintings and I like to use different styles and techniques depending on what I am making. I have lots of fun making silk screen printing, based on my drawings or photographies. As source of inspiration I'd say life in general, music, people, nature and so on. Sometimes I feel I have something important on my mind and sometimes I'm just flowing along to see where the process is bringing me. Music has always played a major part in my life so naturally it is a big source of inspiration. As I have lived almost my entire life in a small town, close to nature ( and I teach biology ) nature has become a source of inspiration too.
