NEW Fat Line style
Every now and then you need to experiment. I've been experimenting with new styles/ways of working since the beginning of 2015. Finally, I've settled on a look, the NEW FAT LINE. On the 1 hand it is a bold, more graphic look for me. On the other hand it feels like a natural outgrowth of my thin line style. I'll be putting the Fat line illos at the beginning of each portfolio section as I make them and I deem them portfolio worthy.

Ransom Exhibit - Nov 9 -Dec 8 2013
It's been a busy, busy, year. Unfortunately most of what I've been up to has been top secret. Which is why I've been very quiet on the news front. BUT thankfully there is one project I can talk about. Ransom: A Demanding Collaboration with More Than 300 Artists is a group exhibit at the Wayfarers Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. Each participating artist was assigned a word from an original story. My word was idea. We had to create a small art piece that depicted the word. The effect of the exhibit was a huge expansive ransom note.
As for my other projects...hoping some of them get published soon so I can share the news.
