About MichaelStephenCarter

On Etsy since 2016

Welcome to MichaelStephenCarter

MichaelStephenCarter was started by Michael who studied Graphics, Art, and then Product Design at University, all of which contributed to his drawing ability and techniques. Now he works in marketing, alongside art, so his interest is very much in products, brands and the inspirational and aspirational nature of an object and how people relate to it.

A few words from Michael:

"I have always drawn on paper, I love the idea of a blank canvas. It sounds simple, but there’s something exciting about drawing with pen too, the permanence of it – especially when I am nearing the end of hours spent on a single piece of work! When I start to draw I select a product, take as many photos as I can of it in multiple poses, with different lighting to achieve the best representation of the product in a photograph. My technique is then essentially scaling it up, mapping it out, and then starting a long journey of lightly scribbling in small circles, just as you might doodle while sat on the phone. I layer these up on top of each other to achieve a sort of photorealism.

I have always loved drawing with fineliner pens, all the way from my days of graphics and product design, and they are the ideal medium to achieve fine details. When I was searching for a quality paper with texture to carry lots of ink, I stumbled upon Arches 640gsm cold pressed paper which as well as being produced in the same way since 1492 in France, gives a fantastic texture – not too rough, not too smooth – in which I can layer pen strokes to achieve texture and depth and is able to stand up to me working into it over and over without damaging it.

I have an enormous list of things I plan on drawing next from bespoke work, product ranges to more 'arty' pieces, and I will always continue to post work in progress shots on our Instagram account as I go. I have a few commission requests at the moment, and am always open to new and exciting challenges!"
