Large Sketchbook Drawing #2, 2023
Ink, marker
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.

This drawing leans more on realism. When examining the relationships with the women in my life, I wanted to create a large subtraction where the drawing would feel empty or off-balance .
