Drawing with Typewriters

Artist Scarlett McCalman started using typewriters as a drawing tool in 2010. In this series she incorporated some of her own writing into these drawings.

Of this series she said: 

"In 2012 I created a vast body of work using typewriters as drawing tools. I incorporated my own writing from my journals into each piece. The results were images made up entirely of personal entries, however the content was masked by the layering of text. Since typewriters can only accomodate small pieces of paper, the pieces never got very large. I would like to broaden my techniques and dimensions by taking the Large Scale Drawings Class that incorporates both image and text, and requires journaling as part of the course."
