Keeping your stuff.

From 2007 #01

Keeping your work in folios or books or on shelving never hurts. I opened a large sketchbook the other day. It had been filled a few years ago. Some of the work was finished, some not. Some I am proud of, some not. They are what they are, a peek at what was going on at that particular point in time. At any rate, I decided to share every one of the works in that book on my blog. One of the things that I learned by keeping stuff is that I have not necessarily gotten any better (or worse) at art. I may be more adept now than I was back a while. But I may be less inventive too. As I say, it is what it is. All drawings were done on 11 x 14 inch, 93 pound, double sized, acid free, natural white Aquabee paper. There were 60 drawings originally. A few are now missing; they were sold. Will sell any that remain? If I can.
This is #1. It is in wax crayon and litho crayon.


About mmgilbert

I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
