“I paint, I draw, and I do it everyday.”  Loui Jover

“Art……….Cartoon…………Thought “Right now I like making ink drawings on adhered together sheets of vintage book paper, there is a fragility to these images that I find interesting (as if the wind may blow them away at any moment) and the hand drawn stark black lines against the intricate printed words of the book pages offer a strange fusion and depth that seems to give the images a kind of ‘meaning’ and back story, even though unconnected in a contrived way. I never pick the image for the pages or visa-versa they just collide as chance permits, any meaning they may have is purely created by the observer and their own imaginings.” I have drawn since childhood and as other children stop at some point in their development i never did. I draw obsessively every single day filling books with ideas, cartoons and drawings. So my drawing abilities seem to have developed in natural progression giving me the ability to freely use a number of distinct styles and approaches. I have formally studied commercial and graphic art and hold an advanced certificate in visual communication”. Loui Jover
