Drawing

Drawing

Drawing is the foundation of everything I make, although deliberately setting out to make *a drawing* is a rare occurrence.   The pile of junk mail on the kitchen table becomes a repository of germinal scribblings, done while I talked on the phone, or when an idea struck me in the middle of breakfast.  In sketchbooks, or in the margins of whatever I'm reading, tiny renderings and roughly penciled compositions are the first move toward translating an idea into visual form.  Sometimes those hurried marks are the basis for larger drawings, like the ones shown here.  Sometimes they complete the journey from rough sketch to finished painting or print.  Just as often they end up stashed in a book somewhere, waiting to reawaken an idea when I come across them weeks or months or even years later.
