This early pencil drawing by illustrator and comic artist Aidan Koch is taken from a collection of life drawings made in 2012 titled Field Studies. Made while Koch was artist in residence at Epicenter in Green River, Utah, this image of the surrounding beach cliffs shows Koch’s skill at rendering romantic, often emotive, subject matter with swiftness and restraint. The drawings from this series were later compiled in a book and published by Floating World Comics.
A. Koch, b. 1988 Seattle, WA, is an artist and graphic novelist. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
