Graphic Narratives

Each set of works in the series can be thought of as an abstract visual novel of sorts, something to be read, like a stone tablet or a set of scrolls. In drawing them, I like to consider how one can approximate the experience of reading a complex novel, in an expansive graphic language. The formats or styles of drawing can change from set to set.

The Every Second Counts series uses short pencil strokes and “scribbled” line to build up form.
This composition also can approximate music in that it is built of marks of color drawn with varying strengths, speeds and emphasis much like musical notes and tones or the way different 
instruments work together in a musical composition. As in music, structure and form are built through repetition, variation and contrast, areas of intensity and areas of rest; and the creation of 
an engrossing or compelling visual experience, as opposed to aural experience, is the goal of the piece.”
