sketchbook works vol. 1: 2008 - 2012


The drawings which compose Sketchbook Works Vol. 1 & 2 were developed through pain staking processes of organized mark making within the rigid confines of the grid. The production of these works allowed me to employ traditional methods of drawing, as well as unconventional modes such as tediously mixing a vast array of custom marker colors for perfect gradients, laser engraving miniature patterns onto pages, and using destructive processes like dissolving imagery with chemical solvents. These drawing processes enabled me to craft a diverse array of visual experiences derived not only from organized drawing systems, but also from mistakes and destructive actions, whose results were sources of evolution seen in this body of work.
