I have a number of different sets of work going on with various mediums and treatments. Sometimes its based on what I have available to me in materials and space. Lately I’ve been spending my days in a tight space in Manhattan doing illustration and when I have spare time I’ve been working on these little improvised sketches using pencil, graphite, benzyl-alcohol based inks, india ink and sometimes a little water. I allow the materials to react and keep the editing to a tight minimum. These are often more fun and exciting than a fully “realized” finished painting. And it’s my nature to luxuriate in fun and excitement. I guess thats also why I love fleshy female form. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
