Artwork for glass gilding workshop. [2016]

These drawings are produced at my home studio in Boise, Idaho. I work standing up at a drafting light table with a No. 2 pencil, a piece of paper and a sliding straightedge.

Starting with a rough sketch I’ll refine the drawing with multiple overlays. Most of the work seen here is in its second, third or fourth iteration.

I am in the process of assembling a collection of sketches to with and hoping to publish them sometime in the near future. Please sign up for my mailing list at the bottom of this page, or follow my instagram for updates.
