New Drawing

This drawing was just finished yesterday. I cut apart some old india ink drawings and reassembled them. Interesting way of working; it still involves a brush mark, but the assembly process allows for some new and unexpected things to happen.

New Photograph

I'm not sure exactly what I'm thinking here but as I was working on some new panoramas at the Magic Hedge this fall I came up with this. I was initially thinking of showing them in black and white, which is a big shift for me. I couldn't quite justify that in my mind. I often look at my photos in different modes in Photoshop and as I was looking at this one as a negative I liked how it appeared to be a winter landscape. I use a portion of this panorama as my Holiday card this year.

Tribute to Haley

My favorite dog in the whole world passed away just before the Holidays. Haley was the most beloved pet of good friends of mine and I would sometimes dog sit for her. She sat for her portrait last fall as she waited for her family to return from a trip.

Series Of Drawings-Summer 2009

There were over 20 drawings in this series. There are still a few at various locations: Las Manos Gallery, Scout and Polo Ralph Lauren on Michigan Avenue. They are all sized 30 x 40 inches, and all are india ink on Strathmore Bristol.

A Panorama From Wrigley Field

There are four photos in this series, this one being my favorite. These images were made three years ago before they renovated Wrigley Field and changed the wall that ran along Waveland Avenue. The entire series was shot near the corner of Waveland and Kenmore and it was very much about the culture of people that would gather there for various reasons. I was primarily interested in the 'Ball Rats', those people that would hang out and attempt to catch and collect home run balls as the flew over the wall.

A Selection Of Train Photographs

This series was created in 2005 and 2006. They are images of the elevated train in Chicago, mostly depicted at night. They really are 'faux' panoramas as they are all created using just one photo as a starting point.

My First Attempt at Blogging

This is my first attempt at posting so I thought I'd just upload an image of a drawing from this summer. It was made on site at the Bird Sanctuary near the Waveland tennis courts.
