Work In Progress
I have recently completed the construction of a modest 120 sq. ft. studio at Dreamsland. It took nearly two years to complete, mainly because I built the main structure during my last few months at Sans Comic by scavenging free lumber and supplies. Once the shell was assembled on site, I had to patch it together in stages, saving enough money from various side projects to purchase what I could in materials in order to move through multiple phases of construction. It was a real test of my patience, and it feels satisfying to have a permanent work space (RENT FREE!) to maintain a connection to my studio practice for the foreseeable future.
I have started in on the early stages of a new project, a graphic novel of sorts, that was conceived during my residency in Salzburg. Since I was a child I have always longed to create a comic-graphic novel and, although I did not take the path of becoming an illustrator in my 20’s, I never stopped reading graphic novels. I am excited to be stumbling down a new creative path because it represents a whole world of possibilities for storytelling and collaborations with other artists. I hope to have this little project published sometime in 2018. Until then, I look forward to shutting myself in the little studio over the long winter.
