In 2015, I did a series of pieces combining illustrations with my writing and posted many on instagram. The art and words were each based on a larger series I’d started as early as 2002. I had dozens of large sketches with poems, lyrics and phrases written all over them. Back then I’d planned on creating larger multimedia paintings that combined my imagery with my writing. I started a few, but was not happy with the results. The traditional media just wasn’t working as I’d hoped. As they are now, I still consider them “sketches”. My plans are to continue with the series and realize them as full digital paintings.
