Drawing from Inspiration — Iron Man

Freelance artist Cory Siewert shares how he draws Iron Man with digital Copic markers in Concepts.

I tend to draw my creative efforts from things that really inspire me. Anything can do it really — a fun sign, architecture, colors, characters, etc.

Cory Siewert- I grew up in a house full of musical and artistic talent. I can relate to Alain Passard in his quote during his “Chef’s Table France” episode where he says something along the lines of “I had a family where gestures of ‘the hand’ were everywhere.” My family is musical — it creates, or sings or writes — and not just mechanically so, but there is a true gifting about the way they do it.

My current line of work is actually in Specialty Coffee. I love it. Though my work in it is not in a capacity where I draw at all. I am hoping that changes in the future!

I remember in school as a second grader getting in trouble for some elaborate drawing of a hockey goalie I had done because for whatever reason — and I still don’t know why to this day — but I was told by my teacher that “it was a perfect example of what not to do.” That stung at the time, because I am sure I did it with elaborate effort. I laugh now, ha ha!
