"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.
