Part 2 covers samples from 1993 through 2000.  A period from the end of college at Art Center College, in Pasadena, California through moving to New York.

I’ve always sketched in ink, with a preference for Uniball micro black (later also adding a Tombo black marker for deep blacks.) In these works you’ll see the addition of brush pens, ultimately settling on a Kuratake 40 further down the road.

The examples here are in chronological order.  Some detailed notes about the drawings when you mouseover the thumbnail images.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”1697,1699,1813,1701,1747,1749,1703,1709,1815,1819,1775,1777,1817,1705,1707,1711,1741,1713,1753,1773,1715,1755,1751″ display_title_caption=”true” layout=”3″ gallery_style=”4″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
