This is one of my sons favorite drawings. Every time he comes to my studio he asks if I will draw some tanks for him that are just like these. This project never really got much further than what you see right here. In the end I just wanted to draw some tanks. There was [...]
For last few months I have been posting work on Fridays that I have in essence retired as a way to end the week. Today is no different in that this post is inhabited with work that I no longer intend to show. The difference being that I have decided to offer these up to [...]
