negative, positive
Time flies! I have been drawing with a broad-nibbed Pilot Parallel pen belonging to Ansel. It's incredible. Totally unwieldy, totally unpredictable. I enjoy its thick, fat marks and the fact that they could either indicate negative or positive space. Who's ...

something's happening
I'm just not exactly sure what. I got a clue, though, while I was drawing in one of my favorite places in the world: Skaneateles. Aptly and justly nicknamed the Jewel of the Finger Lakes. Anyway, I found myself not doing the work to actually look at things,...
