Drawings & Prints

I taught drawing classes from 2009-2013 at BYU and love observational drawing, especially drawing outdoors in the landscape. I have explored a variety of ways to more fully utilize and incorporate the concepts I am concerned with in my 3D work to drawings and prints.

Iconic Conversation

Still working on ideas on how to complete this piece - I am very happy with the drawing.

This is the 4" x 9" drawing I did in preparation for the fabric collage Pilgrimage to Ancestral Homeland that can be seen in family history relics.  I relied on Griffith's Valuation and Google Earth maps in laying out this piece.

Stay Puft - Original Drawing
12" x 15" Pen and Ink - 2013

First attempt to finish the piece as part of a digital collage

Saint Puft 
19" x 32" 
The drawing was mounted to a panel, guilt, and then I constructed this frame to hold the drawing and accompanying relic (pictured below).

Hoodoos from Devils Garden Escalante, UT

Seaside Auto Sales: Mirage II
Pen and Ink - 2012

In the Mirage series I am placing Neon signs in Landscapes where they do not belong, yet feel as if they have always been there.  The signs themselves are constructs of the many signs I see in my travels and do not actually exist.   They are draw in a deteriorated state as if relics of a civilization no longer in sight. 

The drawings are done on Arches 200lb cold press watercolor paper with Micron pens .005 - .2 sizes.  Each one takes between 30 - 40 hours to complete.  Thus, a labor of love.... or insanity, not completely sure yet.

Hotel Waterville studies

This contour line drawing is composed of the silhouettes of my sculptures.  I saw the image below in a show of travel posters by graphic design students and was inspired to create this piece.  I spent days composing the image, trying to get it just right. Still incomplete, each layer will be filled in with textured and layered color fields – still working on tests.  In the end it will be a limited edition print series with a relic inset in some way. Began in 2010
