Early grotesques: art archive

two sketchbook drawingsA number of years ago I published a limited edition of a book of drawings entitled A Collection of Surmised Grotesques. It was a project that grew out of my sketchbook drawings; some were loosely based on observations, though many were invented out of whole cloth. Each page featured an individual, and a line or two about personality, or something he or she was thinking.

The two pages above, from a very old sketchbook, reminded me of those. Also, it’s something I’ve been contemplating revisiting, as it’s awfully fun.
