In 2012 I was in the thick of college, stealing moments in every lecture whenever there was a gap in Important Information That Will Be On The Test to put down some ink. Lectures were never boring, even when the content was. I always had an ear on the professor and an eye on whatever I was drawing at the time.
Sometimes the drawings invaded my notes. Sometimes they even augmented my notes. But just as often, the real world science I was absorbing leaked into my pen and made its way into a monster of a project that was shaping up to define this decade of my life as an artist.
I have many more early sketches, but they’re in another city so they’ll have to wait. I want to preserve them here for myself more than anything, so I don’t have to keep storing them in a room I’m still paying rent for and not even living in.
In the mean time, I’ve made this.
