I talked to Robin Lauersdorf at the Columbus Arts Festival.
Tell me about your work.
I do graphite pencil drawings. They are photo realistic. Most of them take me from 4 to 10 weeks to create. I create about 3 or 4 a year.
What is the average cost of your work?
$4,000 to $18,000 for the originals. The reproductions are from $50 to $100.
What are the sizes of the reproductions?
From small, up to 6 feet wide.
How long have you been producing drawings?
For 36 years. I have been at this show about 20 times over the last 36 years. This is one of the better shows. This weekend, the weather is perfect. People are coming out and I am doing well.
