The looser, ink and gouache drawings tend to be somewhat imagistic.
Visual poems, in a language somewhat like that found in dreams.
The ball point pen drawings are more like inner road trips in which the act of drawing
itself is a kind of meditation. A kind of surgery
performed on a body, which is my mind.
Enjoy, and hopefully, relate.
