2013 Daily Project Posted

The Daily Artwork page has been updated with the rest of 2013’s drawings. At the end of 2013 I moved back to Illinois and changed day jobs. The move put me behind on documenting the daily project quite a bit. Finally I have everything uploaded to the site!

The nature of the project allowed me to experiment with ideas and compositions that normally I would be too reserved to try. I always had a new piece to start the next day so I felt I could try any idea that came to mind. While I often reverted to my current body of work exploring suburban landscapes, there were many pieces that were outside of my comfort zone.

I took the month of May to make work that was mostly autobiographical. It was a chance to revisit ideas from earlier bodies of work. I hoped to touch upon universal ideas from my personal experience.

I also took the opportunity to get reacquainted with collage.

Using old prints, drawings, and other abandoned projects I explored and expanded my visual vocabulary. I also took a few chances to play with images from comics and magazines. Many times I used images of typical contemporary housing with images of monsters and superheroes to add an element of magic and intrigue to typical suburban housing.

Playing with these images also allowed me to have more fun with my work, and lead to the series of drawings that close out the project. I decided to use fictional locations as if they were typical subjects in my work. Instead of examining how the elements of suburban landscapes, I turned my concentration to cartoon villages and homes. I didn’t have the same results, and I am still figuring out what this might mean for my work.
