Early last summer I was asked by Ron Abram, Associate Professor of Drawing & Printmaking at Denison University, Granville, Ohio if I'd be interested in contributing to a printmakers portfolio addressing the subject matter of Equilibrium using Tom of Finland as the jumping off point. The portfolio will be exhibited as part of the SGC (Southern Graphics Council) International's conference being held on the campus of Washington University at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, March 16-19, 2011.
Needless to say, I was more than thrilled to be given the challenge of creating my response to one of my favorite Artist/Illustrators.
Here is the direction I chose.
Initial Pencil Drawing Directly on Linoleum
Hanging to Dry
