Large Sketchbook Drawing #3, 2023
Ink, marker & watercolor
18 x 24 in.

My large sketchbook drawings are a personal practice into dividing the line between realistic and emotional accuracy. How much can I manipulate or subtract the drawn line to propagate emotional expressiveness, before the image accuracy loses integrity. As if Realism and Punk methodology shared space on the same wedding cake.

I believe in many ways athletics serves as a replacement platform from hunting for the modern male. Instead of tribes, we form teams in pursuit of a goal which used to be food, now points on a scoreboard.

In this drawing, I am surrounded by ex-girlfriends and athletics form the late 90s. Tennis in the upper left and the top silhouette of The Air Jordan XVI shoe in the upper right.
