I'm in a group show at GRSF that opens this Saturday. I just have two drawings in it. I would have made more but forgot about the show until the very last minute. But I had enough time to frame them.

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen you do that sort of thing before. The pencil lines are so delicate and nice on that paper - gorgeous paper, too, with the deckled or torn edges.

They look good in the shadowbox frames. Man that makes me want to draw so badly... I'm so caught up in more technical art these days...

Oh if only there was more time...

Anyhow, there's something brilliant about your collage compositions where it feels like you just draw either whatever's around you or what's on your mind. I don't know why but they're real satisfying to look at... Like hearing ambient music.

the paper is rives bfk. it's super sweet to draw on. it's also pretty thick. like if you curve it a little it'll stand on it's own.

thanks always for the nice words.
