My work is still quite young, and it is only thanks to the guidance of Jennifer Sorenson that is here at all. That said, I appreciate the opportunity to show what I have learned. As in earlier photographic work, my preference is black and white, which dictates my media. I use pencil, charcoal, pen and ink for most everything I draw. 


My first efforts were dedicated to illustrating a book that I am writing about my grandfather’s horseback journey through the new state of New Mexico, using his antique photos for references. Then, I turned to drawing my favorite writers; interesting photos that I had taken and celebs, using Richard Avedon’s photos; finally, modern painters and their work. Here, I used color rendering their work in the background. As you can see, these drawings are personally attached to my particular interests. I hope they speak to you.
