inside/out




Most of my drawings and little illustrated books are pretty abstract but the ones in this book are more figurative with a focus on expressive mark-making. 

"Inside/out" is a series of drawings and a little poem about being locked in. 


"fuzzy head inside"

"Coming out! Ready or not!"

"softly locked inside"























































Sometimes the "bars" are not visible.




"angry inside"

"confused inside"

"inside hidden angst"































































"wonkey"




















Even though these are not pretty pictures, I hope you can enjoy them.

Thanks Donna they were done with serious intent. I also love the cooler,ordered collages you make. I find it so hard to stop.(That's why I made 20 different images for inside/out).
