Twenty-First-Century-Drawing took a distinct turn in style at the dawn of the new millennium, as trained artists started emulating the untrained eye and hand. In the vain of Jean Dubuffet, today's new drawing all but requires this affected and child-like approach, but with artists working through their individual-naive-inclinations. 

UCLA trained artist Calvin Marcus was the focus of FRIEZE Art Fair NYC, 2015, Clearing Gallery's Project Space. His tongue-sticking-out device included in each work has long been a favored image for Millennials for a selfie, as an Emogi, with Miley Cyrus videos, etc. Calvin Marcus says of his drawings "These (images) are a little less descriptive, so there’s more to look forward to and more to unfold in the next thing I do and the next thing after that." 

Most of these fantasy self-portraits are clothed in military uniforms and are riddled by bullets. Although created by a young adult, these drawings recall the casual art of prepubescent boys, who are having fun drawing their detached view of soldiers and officers in a war, bullet holes and all. These artworks have many mesmerizing messages, both obscure and mixed - spoken in the non-verbal language of colored lines and scribbles on paper.
