I keep returning to this four a couple of reasons. One is that it makes me laugh, such a great expression, the raised eyebrow, the expressive mouth. Reminds me of the work of a friend of mine, Freise Undine, but I couldn't find any of his stuff online to show you. He paints in pale yellow, like old newsprint, on a black field. Remarkable stuff. The other reason this draws me is the palimpsest background. It looks like old scratched film, and it also looks like parts of the drawing were erased, especially the light lines radiating out from the left side of the face. It makes me want to know the under painting, the under idea, the under toad. I also like the circle that springs out from under the right ear, almost like a reversed thought bubble. Good stuff, really terrific.

I forgot to mention the white spirit at his side, whispering into his ear. Love that.

Hey Rebecca-

I'm glad you liked this. These drawings have me all hot and bothered right now, I'm having a great time with them. The background is the surface of my dinner table, which I made out of a sheet of plywood topped with a sheet of steel. So the marks, circles, stains, etc. are all organic, naturally occuring.

The other night I was sitting there after dinner with my wife and we were eating Dove dark chocolate hearts and I was playing with the wrapper and noticed that it left a light mark on the a few minutes I had my first drawing. This guy is the third one.

They are transitory, ephemeral works. The overbright light on the left of the picture is just reflected light from the window that I could not effectively block out for the photograph, but, like you, I loved the effect. I love the organic feeling, the accidental juxtapositions, the light and shadow, and the short-lived nature of should watch them dissappear over the course of a few meals, fading away to ghosts....

Anyway, thanks for letting me blabber about process.
