This is series of marker drawings I drew on printer paper while I was an Industrial Design student at the University of Cincinnati (class of ’03). The series consists of 62 drawings, executed in marker and black pencil, that were made over the course of a week. These are a few highlights from the series.
I have long been fascinated with face masks, and the above sketch is evidence of that. Guess I was ahead of my time!
I’ve done many self portraits over the years, but not too many in marker. Here is one. Yes, I am about to fling a rubber band at the viewer.
While looking through these drawings, I’m not surprised that they are almost 20 years old. What I’m surprised about is that they still strongly smell of markers in 2020. Whew!
