“i adore drawing. i’m obsessed with it,” says t.s abe (@ts_abe ), a 28-year-old british artist who creates short looping videos of her pencil-and-paper self-portraits. “i’d been making traditional pencil self-portraits for over a decade before i decided to pick up my camera and shoot with the intention of creating a portrait in motion,” says abe, who lives in west london. “i shoot the footage of whatever i’ve seen in my head, play around with it on my computer to find the perfect loop, and then draw the frames—typically six to 20 of them.”
she’s been a full-time illustrator for more than three years, but abe doesn’t take the creative freedom for granted. “making a living from drawing is still mind-blowing to me,” she says. “drawing is so comforting — being able to distill the peculiar and confusing experience of life into something exacting.”
