Here & There

FEBRUARY 11, 2012
"Day for Night" -just a doodle. I liked the idea that the headlights could be movie projectors but it's light outside and that made me think of the Truffaut film. (ink, pencil, charcoal, crayon, fabric paint)
Good stuff, items here from my sketchbooks from January. All somewhere between "here" and "there" --in the process of feeding the beast.
"Ménage a trois" (collage, colored pencil, ink)
This was meant to be autobiographical but clearly, it's not. (pencil, crayon, watercolor)
This reminds me of those winter days where the snow reflects so much warmth from the brilliant sun. This elf a migrant laborer, is on his way home from that sweatshop at the North Pole. (gouache, collage, colored pencil)
This collaged stone wall languished for months in my sketchbook. I started adding the vines and it created a more intimate space for something nice to be discovered –a special singing bird! (collage, watercolor, pencil, acrylic)
This began as a word-picture. Bernadette Gervais, a French illustrator, asked me to make a painting of it. So I did. I'm currently working on a few picture book proposals for Editions du Seuil Jeunesse. (collage, ink, colored pencil, watercolor, gouache)
