For the next several days I will be posting sketchbook drawings. This is how I hone my ideas into final works. Not every drawing in these sketchbooks will be incorporated into a finished work but are equally important in the process of idea-forming. Sometimes drawings produced months apart from one another will be combined to form a new idea that can be realized into a finished work. I have begun to revisit old sketchbooks to see what was piquing my interest months and even years ago. I have noticed that my ideas for artwork are cyclical and my concerns for various subject matter have continued to be important in my thinking and have also grown to include new issues that I feel I should address. I am being vague about the subject matter as it will become evident to the viewer as I post the sketches and artwork. I can't give it all away! The viewer has to do some thinking and deducing as well.
