It’s titled “Into the Crowd.” #ODADarchive Another Florida drawing from years back. I still remember my first time drawing down at the Magic Kingdom. The smells, the crowds—the newness of it […]

I remember doing the drawing, who I was with, and while not of great importance just thinking I should—never knowing that the location would be changed and that the drawing would mean a little more for reasons only some will understand.

liberté

  This is a detail from an enormous drawing I did last summer, (4′ x 6′ to be exact).   Sometimes when you’re in the middle of a drawing you don’t see the subtlety in moments (or frames) within the “big picture”. It can take time to actually READ YOUR DRAWING and genuinely SEE WHAT IT’S DELIVERED. This […]
