106: Drawn Together, Natural Pigments and the Many Faces of Dylan Sara

In this episode of Drawing Inspiration, I sit down with the talented Dylan Sara, whose passion for portraiture breathes new life into the art form. We delve into his artistic roots, tracing back to childhood drawings at the kitchen table, and follow his journey through the challenges of architecture school to his inspiring travels in Europe. Dylan’s dedication to his craft is evident as we discuss his return to art, focusing on the human face’s intricate beauty and the stories each portrait tells. Join us as we uncover the depth and dedication behind Dylan’s portraiture and his unique approach to combining traditional techniques with modern technology.
