Drawing is at the core of how I function as an artist. Many of these drawings are fragments of larger trains of thought, some more developed than others, some quick and others slow, and many are simply dead ends. It's cheap, always accessible, and the fastest way for me to think. I draw everyday, mostly in sketchbooks, and see numerous overlaps between drawing and writing, planning, and mimicking. Drawing is direct compared to ceramics where ideas tend to be translated, error and chance lead to new meanings, and the logistics are burdensome and time consuming.
