As I mentioned before, I've used a lot of letraset materials in this new work. Point in case, I spent 5 hrs today doing this all by hand. Futura, Cooper black, pioneer fonts with dots.

Before I begin a new body of work, I'll develop a color family on the computer and later create the dozens of colors to keep a graphic color harmony with all the works based on those selected pantones. Looking at some of these jars reminds me how much my pallete has changed, darker, softer, and less saturated. I suppose it's an unconcious affect living in the NW for several years now.
upon moving into the new studio I finally organize my rare collection. I came upon these at my art school senior year. there was a 15' wide closet filed balls to walls with thousands of these things. and get this...they were going to throw them away. so my wife and I pilaged the collection withas much as we can carry. having them organized now, I released the hounds and reintroduced these back into my recent work.
if you ate scratching your head, these are those little rub off letters you'll find at art stores. except my collection is macho city, with dingbats, patterns, and NUMEROUS fonts.

I'm about to wrap up my first solo show in 3 years. in a week I'll be driving down with my wife and our 2 dogs from Portland, OR. now that I found a reliable app to post progress and the adventure on my phone, I'll do my best to post a daily entry for the next several weeks.
