Color Pencil

1997-present

I started doing little drawings with color pencil on black paper in 1995 when I first moved to New York and was without a studio. I had a small, spiral bound book of black paper on which I created drawings based on the first names of my friends, which I then gave to them. I then did a larger drawing of my own name, a self-portrait of sorts, which appears as the icon at the bottom of my website. 

 

Once I was more settled, I began using this media for drawings with less specific imagery which is drawn from a wide range of sources. In other words, these ideas come from everywhere, which is a very liberating process. These drawings led directly to the development of the Black Light Work.
