This is a bunch of stuff from my sketchbook of late – characters, figure drawings, and studies. Though these do inform what I later create, none of them really end up in my art exactly like this, it’s more about exploring things or hammering out ideas. Over the years it’s all become a vast concordance that includes my Mac, my iPhone, scraps of notes or napkins – anything I have on hand when an idea strikes, really. A lot of this is taped or glued into the books.
As my friend Ari (a warrior poet if ever there was one) is fond of saying: ‘Sweat as much as you can in practice so you’ll bleed as little in battle.’.
