Peter Deligdisch is just this guy, you know? He likes drawing lines, coloring things in, burning wood, and short, insignificant walks on the beach.
There’s nothing I love quite like an understated artist’s statement. Under the name “Peter Draws,” Deligdisch creates ink drawings of surpassing intricacy, some of which could easily pass as engravings. But what I’m sharing today is his pyrography, which is as it sounds—drawings made with fire. With woodburning tools, Deligdisch creates gorgeous, labyrinthine drawings on animal skulls.
He does some in ink, as well:
A book of Deligdisch’s work is available, which includes reproductions of his sketchbook pages as well as finished pieces. He maintains an online store to make prints available, and his Instagram is definitely worth exploring, as is his YouTube channel. Here’s some video footage of fox skull pyrography in action.
