You know what? I need to fuckin draw more. I was at the Tom of Finland Erotic Art Fair in NYC this weekend and saw some drawings that just made me green with envy. And I got in some drawing time too this weekend, turning out some things for my gallery to take to the Basel Art Fair – which I guess is next weekend. All you folks in Switzerland: there’s some art coming your way that was just pencil lead a week ago.
But the truth is I don’t draw enough – I can turn it out when I need to, but drawing is like playing your scales: do it enough and your technique noticeably improves. I’ve only done one residency in my life, but I would love to do one where all I did was draw for a few weeks. Maybe have a couple of models come in.
Okay, now this is officially entering the realm of workplace daydreaming.
