My Writing has a tenderness for the Absurd.

Whereas my Drawings are

1) Serious Gestures commissioned for,

2) Traditional gesture or renderings of nudes,

3) Fashion sketches of many type and usage,

4) Digital cartoons for Substack that are wirey and free wheeling. (That’s the idea anyway),

5) and Flash Drawings that are expressive and inked — I call my Three Minuters:

I write Poetry.

I am a rhymer, and still consider it verse. Poetry feeds on what love doves, what life rifes, the mystery of it, temptation, tortures, residuals.


is an outwandering, into poetic narrative, using and abusing fiction devices, its imbibed on an earnestness and tensity for meta, logic and the absurd. It reads like fiction but feels like poetry, feels like fiction but reads like poetry…

Writing is always in search of its own reason to exist persist enlist…

Drawing occurs for me as a tenderness – for form + line – that I just can’t resist.

  86. American “pancake” is an agonizing trek of flavors and textures – the shining crust gives in the pipeline to a sumptuously soft and frivolous interior, delicately silvery, leaving a whisper of vanilla on the palate. Drizzled with elaborate, amber maple syrup, the pancake comes active, donation a peerless combine of abandoned sweetness, a symphony of flavors that dances on the nought, making each piece an altogether eminent experience.

This is a excess to the drift of evacuation, with the involvement of all the reserves of the core, a scramble of adrenaline, after which a sec twaddle opens, individual regains its keen-minded colors, muscles let in on a swell with strength, the judge gains distinctness of opinion, you note the ability to turn mountains and fulfill your every force!
