"panic attack whilst treading water"

"panic attack whilst treading water"
19 1/2" x 25 1/2"

a return to figurative work after a month and a half. working on combining new ideas with old ones. it was a long project, but the snow days helped me hammer it out quicker than i thought. this is the first in probably at least a 4-drawing series. the holiday break will interrupt the drawing schedule, but i'll probably have a few more by mid-winter. it should keep me busy for a while, and that's a good thing.

"it's not always like this"

"it's not always like this"
28" x 66"

the second big gold drawing, a companion piece to "the transition is hard to deal with." it acts as a depiction of the aftermath of all the action from the previous piece. the wreckage floats around as the curtain begins to lower on the scene. not quite as intense or packed with imagery, it's a quieter, reflective work.

"the transition is hard to deal with"

"the transition is hard to deal with," 2009

this is what i've been working on for the past couple of weeks. it was a lot of scissoring and a lot of exacto-ing. i thought it was going to be a purely un-drawn drawing with paper on paper, but once i added the TV, i realized i'd drawn on that a bit. but, for the most part it is glued-on paper.
the piece came from a sketch i'd been making of the symbols that have occupied my drawings for the past couple years. i liked the idea of making something without me in it, and it forced me to take a different route than i usually do. i'd gotten used to making drawings with a certain formula and it was a good exercise to start it in a new way. i'm quite happy with it. i still need to give it an official title, but i suppose it will always be (the big gold drawing).
***finally came up with the official title, Nov 29th.
