Looking back at my early drawings (ca. 1997), and before getting fully hooked on the computer and digital photography. I liked playing with materials, exploring various ways to mark the surface, transferring images back and forth between the computer, Xerox, laser-printers, and photography while keeping the paper to a manageable size. Drawing was a way of writing, and thinking, by directly working-through the process, which was the basis for any other project I was working on.
