This is Daniel Saidman's drawing of a place with great hashbrowns. Truly tasty!

This again brings up the debate about contourism vrs blind contourism, is there any saidmans like this with a continuous line?

And for example, does the Artdog picture count as contourism at all? If we use the term contourism to define contemporary work and blind contourism to describe work that is formally similar, I think that would work very well, but there hasn't really been a resounding response leaning either way. What do people think?

I think that this drawing raises a few interesting points. One is that it is a drawing that at certain instances, is done blind, but esentially is not a contour, but rather, just a drawing. ANd yet it seems to fit.

Fit what? I suppose contourism could be used to define our contemporary work as a group, and blind contour could refer to the work that has continous line. But again, not all blind work has this quality. And I think there is a 'blindness' in the drawing of Saidman, not pure blind, but blind nonetheless. One could argue that all drawing is blind.

Maybe these drawings should be called drawings of the hand? Unless of course someone starts drawing with their feet.

I hope that our definitons do not exclude too much work, I really like it all. Where to draw the line? (pun intended)

How about to keep things clear we put "blind contour" or mostly "blind contour" on this site, and the more general "contourist" drawings (meaning only contemporary in our case, in otherwords anything) on the label Blog? That way we can keep some coherency here and be fully inclusive on Label.

maybe we should rename the site Continuous Line Blind Contourism?
