hand cramps

Good gravy. I haven’t had to do this much drawing in a concentrated way perhaps ever. My gnarled, bony hands are actually cramping from it all. Ah, the sufferings of the artist. Tough life. Getting to draw all day.

I’ve been M.I.A., and will probably continue to be M.I.A, from the blog for little while longer: I’m in the midst of about a bazillion ink drawings that will then be colored in PhotoShop for Flor de Manila y San Francisco 1973-78, the next series of the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Art on Market Street kiosk posters. I got awarded the project at the end of May, right before leaving for Denmark. But. Since my proposal entailed a lot of local Bay Area resources, I really couldn’t work on it in Denmark: I had to start it in earnest in July, when I got back to town. Hence, yet another mad scramble.

And I’m also still teaching summer session at Cal. And preparing for Galleon Trade BAN 5. More than anything right now, however, it’s aaaalll about finishing these drawings. Some in-progress samples from the Market Street project below: these are 4 of what will probably be between 45-60 total drawings. More details soon to come.
