Excerpt: Tools of the Trade- Jordy van den Nieuwendjik

Dutch artist Jordy van den Nieuwendjik couldn’t choose between paint or crayons for his most essential tool as he finds them both equally important to his practice at the moment. But, he did find it easy to pick working by hand over working on the computer – “Using the length of the arm instead of a twist of the wrist is very important for the spontaneity of drawing”, he told Wrap.
