An interview with the director and the subject of “LOVE BITE”:
I’m no art collector and have cursory knowledge on the subject, but if I could have any work of art on my wall, I would probably choose a Lipton. Who or what is a Lipton, you ask? Laurie Lipton is a Los Angeles-based artist who creates large-scale, immaculate pencil drawings. That’s it. Just a pencil. What she does with that pencil is bring to life the most grotesque side of human nature, our obsession with consumerism, technological terrors, and the unthinkable images that lurk within our subconscious. Her art has to be seen to be believed.


Laurie Lipton is the greatest draftswoman of the 21st century. But she’s humble about it — or at least that’s what she says on her Instagram account.

For those unfamiliar with her work, this may sound like a large claim; however, after watching James Scott’s documentary short “Love Bite,” it will seem like an understatement. The film, which took more than four years to make, chronicles Lipton’s process as she creates massive, detailed, and hauntingly original pencil drawings.

In honor of today’s exclusive online premiere on Vimeo, we reached out to director James Scott to learn more.
