Studies or perhaps end products….?

I recently remembered an old technique for generating compositions that involves making collages and combing them for scenes using a 2 inch or so viewfinder. I loved doing this many years ago and it still seems valid. Here are a couple examples that I may turn into some woodcuts or etchings or…..something.

This series of drawings is executed while my hand, the materials, and the paper are inside a cardboard box. I draw or paint for an indeterminate amount of time, relative to my interest alone in the current execution, while reading a book, or listening to music, or watching a film. It is not to be […]

New Drawing Section

I just added a new section Drawings 2015 to delineate between older and newer work. This is not by any means a comprehensive drawing record because I constantly make new ones. Some thoughts perhaps? Yes, just a few minutes.

Sex, drinking, robots, poets, artists, film, death, atheism, art, cartoons, comic books, songs, music, madness, landscape, biography, loss, and science are just some of the things that compel me to make the art. That’s about all I want to say about the drawings. Find some meaning in them I may have missed.

When Time permits I’ll conduct a mass scanning regimen for more accurate reproductions.
