Twenty-four word and image pieces set in the flat university city of Davis, California, from Autumn 2007 to Spring 2008. Monochrome. It could be anywhere, you could be anyone but it’s here, and you’re you, and that’s a coincidence you can be proud of.
Drawn mostly in a small watercolour moleskine, using micron pigma 01/005 or copic 01 multiliner pens, with cotman watercolour wash.
Do not read the words while looking at the pictures.
This was for the Art-house co-op’s 500 Sketchbook Project. The theme was “How to Save the World”. Their exhibition is in August 2008, in Atlanta. All pictures drawn from around the apartment (with a small excursion across the Atlantic to look out of the window), usually late in the evening while waiting for my baby son to wake up for his bottle.
Mostly copic and micron pigma pens, but no wash.
As far as I’m aware, the world was actually saved. I just don’t know from what.
Started in May 2009, finished in September…
Entirely drawn in cobalt copic multiliner, 03 and 01.
In December 2011 I had my first solo show at the Pence Gallery in Davis, CA. I put together a series of drawings, sketched from Summer into Fall, of various places around the City of Davis and the UC Davis campus.
All drawn on 8″x10″ watercolour paper (Strathmore hot press, Canson cold press) in various pens (uniball vision micro, micron pigma) and watercolour.
