 Gallery of Works on Paper: 1998-2006

Materials and Media: All works on paper presented here are mixed media, which includes color pencil, color marker, ink and pen, collage, and acrylic paint. Of these acrylic paint is the rarest. When I first started painting and was more experimental, I used acrylic liberally, and even latex enamel house paint. Such is the constitution of a thriving but unprofessional art student. (I am more “archival” these days, for the benefit of theoretical collectors of my work.)

My paper of choice is Strathmore’s 500 Series Bristol board (Flat Plate finish), and less so the 400 Series. The former was used exclusively in the production of Blender Kitty comic strips, and for many of the works seen below. The 400 Series provided the substrate for later Profile in Confusion strips, since that quality paper was readily available in tablets, and it did not require trimming broadsheets (as with the 500 Series). Koh-l-Noor rapidiograph pens are unexcelled for drawing, but due to their temperamental nature and difficulty in cleaning, I stopped using them years ago in favor of disposable archival pens.

I was in the habit of signing and dating the year on the back of my artwork throughout the Eighties, but got out of the practice when I gave up any notion of having a career as a fine arts artist.
