On Tuesday, August 9, 2016, I turn 57.
I will begin a year long project on that morning.
I will draw everyday with a Pentel RSVP or Pilot Precise V7 RT.
I will choose a single object or group of objects or scene to draw each week.
I will sketch each subject from 7 different viewpoints.
I will type dictation of that day’s News Events as it streams into my life directly onto the drawing of that day with my Smith Corona Electra.
Creating 52 groups of 7 drawings of the same subject from 7 different viewpoints.
As the project develops, each individual group of drawings will find it’s method of presentation:
- accordion books
- framed drawings
- mounted onto boards
- in a portfolio
This project will run concurrently with my painting practice as time allows.
This project has developed out of a year long love affair with journaling with limited materials: an 8×10″ Strathmore sketchbook and RSVP Pentel and Pilot Precise V7rt refillable pens.
These drawings are from life. I choose to draw only what is easily accessible to me at that very moment in time. This particular project: 57-58, is an intentional outgrowth of the past year’s work. It will not veer far from the its organic development.
I will post the complete week of drawings every Tuesday for the year: August 9, 2016 to – August 8, 2017.
