Drawn From Here
Drawn From Here is a film by Eric Pollard that opens with an exploration of his processes as a skier, as a ski/product designer, and as an artist. It follows the influences he draws from—like basing the shape of a ski tip off of a surfboard or finding patterns observed in nature to integrate into the graphics he hand draws for a ski—and illuminates a thread that runs through and binds all his different disciplines and hobbies. About Eric Pollard: EP is a professional skier, artist, and designer from Welches, Oregon. For 20 of his 36 years he’s been professionally sponsored as a skier, but what defines the whole of his career over that time goes well beyond that one simple fact.
