Client work has been piling up leaving me with little time for daily drawings and even posting stuff here. Still, I crave those little free moments to fool around. I really love working on salvaged paper. It feels somehow imbued with a history and story. Even if it’s a simple receipt, decrepit book page or packing slip…it’s a relic of someone’s life and someone’s time. I have a nice collection of papers to use and they somehow feel more special and valuable because of the meaning attached so I don’t use them all the time. Here are some recent drawings I’ve shared on Instagram. Follow me if you’d like to see more. I’ll try to post more frequently!
