Los Angeles artist and poet, Stephen Brown, a native of southern California, used a variety of traditional and digital tools to draw the sketches in this series.

The subjects of these sketches are captured in moments that reveal the unguarded self, the id. Color is used to bring a unique perspective, enhancing emotional impact.

The Id. project was conceived, in part, as a challenge to preconceptions about digital art, by creating a product that appears to have been made with pen and ink with a color wash. A digital stylus and pad replaces pen and paper, ink and brush. Sometimes penned or painted elements are scanned and composited with digital elements to create the final product – a limited edition fine art print made with archival inks and fine art paper.
