Drawings and Prints by David Oakes
David Oakes is an actor and artist based in London.
"Over the course of my career as an actor I've been fortunate to travel extensively and to experience a great deal. Alongside these journeys I have often drawn on-set or backstage upon the back of scripts or whatever came to hand. Originally my plan was to use this site to present a selection of those drawings, but as this platform developed so has my focus upon defining characteristic techniques and not simply using drawing as a way to fill my spare time. I have a passion for using contrast to express form and movement within natural subjects. I work primarily with ink and with charcoal which, although tonally similar, these two mediums accentuate different qualities of the chosen subject. Thank you for visiting."
A selection of drawings created across the years in various mediums.

An odd little side project that has just started - not sure how long it will last! Enjoy...
