These are of particular interest, as they are where the experiment has ended up. Meaning, There is a consolidation of the previous drawings. Both in technique and aptitude.

These are based on sketches I have done in the past. By based I mean the process. These, presented here, are 3 feet by 4 feet.

In the past these drawings have been done in small sketched books, quickly, and typically with out pre meditated intention of the end result. Here is a small sample

Framed (armouring)

November 27th, 2013

I had to take back the framing. There where a few things that needed to be sorted out.
I was pleased with the results when I picked them up again.
The idea now is to sort out the text. Almost there.

Back at it.
When Ian drawings its very difficult rendering the detail. I defiantly don’t get “lost” like I remember when I was 15-27 years old drawing away in a fever.
This is hard work.
The only joy comes when I take the glasses of and see the drawing from about a foot to two feet away and recognize that what I am doing is actually working.

Slow and steady is this race.

Framing pick up

October 10th, 2013

Picked up my framed “armouring” prints. I saw a sample a few weeks ago. I’ll unwrapped them at the studio latter today or Friday morning.
Eight in total. I used some yellow brass from an older work to help pay for the framing. This type of recycling is not uncommon for me, seems logical to recycle works into others.
For armouring to be completed, as it stands now the work seems to float no context, I am considering a text to accompany the prints.
A photo seems disjointed.
Perhaps employing a writer would help creat a text that works. This needs careful consideration /execution.

I have decided that a grouping of five and three works. What prints constitute each of the two groupings is not decided. Again this work is almost complete. These last details are crucial. As I want the work not only to hold up singularly but also carry the full consequence/history of the work.

Need to figure this out.
I have a feeling, actually an intellectual worry that this work has the potential to fail. Similar to a few other works that failed because of my choosing to share them in a context of a gallery far removed from their activation.
More latter on this

Draw’n tools

October 8th, 2013

Working on T.E.D. Today.
Hard on the eyes.
Added a picture of my drawing tools.
I placed a piece of paper over incomplete areas to rest my arm on the drawing desk. This piece of paper prevents any smudging or unwanted substances to damage the surface while I’m drawing.
