My Writing has a tenderness for the Absurd.

Whereas my Drawings are

  • Serious Gestures commissioned for,
  • Traditional gesture or renderings of nudes,
  • Fashion sketches of many type and usage,
  • Digital cartoons for Substack that are wirey and free wheeling. (That’s the idea anyway),
  • Flash Drawings that are expressive and inked — I call my Three Minuters:
another nude 2 2


I am a rhyme roller, as Beckett calls us rhymers. I still consider poetry verse.

Poetry feeds on what love doves, what life rifes, the mystery of it, temptation, tortures, residuals.



Am sorting out offline.

It 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…

Essay + Notes, Links

I found myself querying across forms. Essays here are an early examination of what I began running into, both discursively and technically. As well as a response to group theories on free writing.

Mostly do on Substack now, in both my notes there and in a variety of Newsletters.

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.

    il n’y a rien à choisir parmi les services à suivre. La douleur de leur vie consiste à chercher quel est leur époque ou quoi. le résultat est que l’enfant est né. quiconque fuit, qui fait quoi, qui fait quoi, comme s’il était béni. car le trouble lui-même, qui est la douleur, la douleur, mais la douleur est grande, entrave les résultats les plus sévères, et cela.

  99. Pancakes zof

    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.

    The aim and the trick is to complete SOME strikes as tenable along a prearranged route ?

    What prearranged route?

    Accuracy, durability, technicality, concentration —

    a non-standard praxis of skills — getting honed to perfection

  202. 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!

  203. Some people like the hush concrete, while others esteem gigantic waves and general currents.
