My name is Per Svanström, and I'm a self-taught pencil artist.

Drawing has always been a big passion in my life but only as a hobby. I have been making serious portraits for almost ten years and for every drawing I make I learn something new. How to draw different textures, sex, hair, skin etc. - It is all about experimenting. - To have fun when drawing. - That is how you learn.

"What I like most about drawing is to take on a new challange and to learn how to draw all shapes and colors in the gray scale.
It's not about making it look like a photo. I like the illusion of photorealism a drawing can make but you should still be able to see that it's made by pencil.

Hello dear followers,

As you all know I have not produced many drawings worthy of you watching me for the last 6 or 7 years. I am trying to change that. 

My life have changed so much the last few years, Since 2008 I have:
  • Quit my job as an assembler at Volvo
  • Gotten a University degree in System Science
  • Lived in 3 cities
  • Worked 2 years as data technologist
  • Only made 1-2 drawings per year 
Drawing has always been a hobby for me and it probably always will be. Since 2008 drawing has not been that fun for me, mostly because I have felt that I don't have the time for it. Today I'm very happy with my life. I have found a job I like very much, I have the best soon-to-be wife and for the last couple of weeks I have felt that same great feeling when drawing as I felt back in 2008. Drawing is fun again. I hope I'm here to stay.

Per 

PS. One of the reasons for the fun in drawing is because of Instagram. I have found hundreds of new inspiring artists to follow in an easy way. Add me on Instagram: "drawings_by_svanstrom".
