One of my first forays into India ink was a series of basket drawings made in early 2007. I recently came across three remaining ones and think they make a nice series. You can see the connection to the later large boxes and to the most recent grids. They are modest in scale at 18 x 24 inches each.
There has been interest in some grid drawings I've been making recently. I sold a couple to Polo Ralph Lauren for their new Shanghai store. Very straight forward process pieces that require some concentration and a steady hand on my part. They are difficult to make out in digital photos. Be sure to click on the thumbnail to see the larger version. It shows what to me are the most interesting qualities of the drawings; the hand, and the variation in line weight.
