This is the first time I’ve featured the work of a fellow artist on my blog.

When I first started to blog, I made the decision to keep my intentions simple and though I’ve been quite tempted to highlight the work of artists I admire, I have only shown you my various efforts.


Today I’m making an exception because the artist whose work I’m featuring is my son.

Gesture, humor, elegance and the drama of the human condition converge and surprise in Julian Cartwright’s  drawings and paintings.

At least that’s how I see it.

    These are just brilliant! Something so satisfying about them, they feel like music and words as well as artwork. What a talented family!

  4. The illustrator’s gene has obviously been passed on!

  5. What can I say that hasn’t already been said, the line drawings are wonderful. With a few strokes of your brush, you say so much, Elena. Your son with a few lines of his pen says so much also.

  6. Wow, these are wonderful! I especially love the first image. Thank you for sharing Julian’s work with us, Elena.

  7. How cool is this?! Great sketches – filled with wonderment and creativity, why would I think anything else considering his creative parents.

  8. These drawings are lovely Elena, and there is a subtle connection to your work. You must be very proud of him!

  9. His work is great! Glad you shared it.

  10. His work is wonderful! I love his linework.
    Thanks for sharing this, Elena. What fun. : )

  11. I really like his drawings and paintings. Very talented!

  12. Brilliant! You are obviously a very talented family.

  13. The first piece you’ve featured here I think is amazing. Intricate care give to each stroke it seems. It along with the other creative drawings have been wonderful to take in.

    Wonderful work! Congrats on your son! 🙂

  19. Interesting how the coloured pieces seem to have quite a different character to the others. The coloured pieces I think are charming and whimsical. The others I find more thought-provoking. I wasn’t sure I liked them at first but after the third pass they’ve grown on me considerably. I hope you’ll be sharing more of Julian’s work. Maybe he should start his own blog…

  20. This is really amazing, your son has a great talent, art has decided to stay in the family…
    Best wishes Elena.

  21. There is so much fabulous detail between his finely drawn lines, what a wonderful introduction!

  22. Amazingly advanced approach to structure an image.
    (Give a damn to any conventional likeliness or typical likely idea)
    What a talented sun you got.

  23. Brilliant! I really enjoyed visiting his website!

  24. Lovely work! He has lots of expression in his line and drawings, and I love the way the spaces he leaves have as much power as the lines he occupies!

  25. Nice art, seems that talent is flowing through the genes…:)

  26. These are wonderful! A very talented family!

  27. Beautiful! Very fluid and dynamic.

  28. You have a very talented son Elena! These are amazing!

  29. Great work. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Delightful!!! 😀
