These are excerpts from sketchbooks created between 2009 and 2012. They have been edited, the total number of drawings was in the hundreds. The complete sketchbook are a historical narrative, a diary, a time capsule, the record, the slow movement of news. Call it what you will, it is continuity in the human experience, from the earliest cave paintings, through the 15th century explosion in comprehension of the natural world, all the way to the algorithms that take us to outer space. Beauty and its shadow, the 1st person perspective of life. One drawing at a time.
