“The ReTurner” 11×14 inch drawing with some collage bits on a linen paper jacket, found on a 1923 J.M.W. Turner book. Somewhat the worse for wear (including the surrealist era forms and gestures I still like using).

Collage made from an advertisement in a 1940 magazine: All brush stroke lines in the illustration were cut-out and rearranged as abstract drawings on a seemingly narrative grid format, 11 x 14 inches, 2017

Same for this one, other than a cartoon illustration was used, both by the way, from Esquire Magazines.  The remarkable thing is, you can take the lines out of the 1940’s, but you can’t take the 1940’s out of the lines !

Two photographs with no exact dates other than their age and subjects. And a particularly wonderful aesthetic notability hard to pass up as a point of view or “A Vista”

September 8th / Todays Post

A murky drawing with floaty collage bits combined in a carefully structured composition to make a compilation of no real intent, other than formal aesthetic play. Enjoy or poo-poo.  2017

2 Xerox prints from the mid-1970s.  Xerox’s of 40 years ago had a grainy gray quality that was ideal for hand coloring with Prismacolor pencils. A title, a signature, and a date made each one into a little mono-print. In the “Tools of the Trade” print, the lines fore and aft are from each tool depicted, including cuts for the X-Acto knife and dried adhesive from the glue stick. Also in the grouping is an early Pentel Pen, and the ubiquitous, all purpose Rapidograph Pen

The dean of so many great Detroit photographers:  +Bill Rauhauser 1914-2017+   An exhibition poster we did in the early 80’s, using his photo of his camera, tilting it on a angle and incorporating it’s little arrows and tic marks into my then current “connotative typography” practice.  This was also the reason for the mix of bold and medium letters within the words and blocks of words, meant to reflect the idea that a photographic likeness is composed of the grouping of lighter and darker shapes and forms into a fixed order necessary to make it a “readable” image.
