when I started making these line drawings I was making 4-5 of them a day, often in one sitting— each one represented a small investment of time spent accumulating lines. Now I am lucky to finish 1 in a single sitting.
I thought these drawings were a diversion, a lateral exploration— but they’ve become far more important than I anticipated. They consume far more time to produce presently, but are still being made in the same spirit and with the same set of core rules.
The reality of making extemporaneous drawings like these is that many of them WILL NOT be successful- most of the drawings I’ve posted from this series are not successful/satisfactory to me and will not likely be shown/seen anywhere other than these pages.
Currently, I’m hoping to get 28 of these drawings (before june 30th) that feel finished, that feel successful, that I feel satisfied with. Who knows how many disappointing drawings it’ll take to get there…
