My graphic art has been developing and I thought I'd open my sketchbook to you in my "Spoken Word and Art" tab. Each of these pieces of art contains a Chinese word, idiom, and/or phrase with special meaning to me. I research them, make technical decisions about how to depict them relative to their meanings and connotations, then develop layouts in pencil, and set out the piece with Sharpies. They may take between 2 and 8 hours of work. Drag, rotate, or click on the pieces to explore my calligraphy organically. I hope you enjoy them!
