Ron Pagenkopp was the artist that I got to meet this week. What I thought was interesting when interviewing him, was that he based his artwork off of his memory. He drew items that had a special story in the past for him. One of the drawings was a picture of a dog, he told us that when he was little he used to play with his uncle’s dog a lot and that’s what inspired him to draw that. He said it took him about 12-15 hours to work on a drawing on average and during those long hours he likes to listen to music while he works, especially rock and roll songs. His title of the show was ‘Retrospection’ and that was quite appealing to me.
