As James Cook says, « A picture is worth a thousand words ». A quote that makes sense in the artist’s pieces, which are drawings made with a typewriter’s characters. Cook has been creating these portraits for over six years and has accumulated more than 100 of them over that time. Each of them can take anywhere between a week and a month to complete. « Each drawing is assembled from a variety of characters, letters, and punctuation marks using the forty-four keys of a typical typewriter. Information is overlaid and the keys are tapped at variable pressures to achieve tonal shading », according to Cook.
