Another caffeine-fueled freakstudy. I remember after I did a bunch of stuff like this in Illinois, we moved to New York State, pretty near the city, and I thought hey, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock territory, this’ll be fun. And they were more uptight than midwesterners. I mean, I had some of my abstract stuff framed and it was worth the money just to see how annoyed they were by my work. I frame my own stuff now (you should too, save yourself a mint…and try getting your frames at second-hand places like Goodwill). This drawing was done from life in Lincoln Park in Springfield, Illinois in 2003. Pretty good range of tone here from the ballpoint pen I used.
6 1/2 x 7 7/8 inches, ballpoint pen on paper, from 2003. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
