:forward into the past 13:

I often entertained thoughts of making art for people instead of buying gifts; sometimes I actually managed to do it in time for birthdays or Xmas. For Xmas 1996 I actually made a different card for each person. I can't imagine doing that now, and that's quite distressing.

This is a scan of a photocopy of a colored pencil drawing, so I'd say a fair amount of detail is lost here.

:forward into the past 12:

I spent most of my formative years drawing a lot, but very little of it involved humans for some odd reason. I think I'm still getting the hang of it. I try to get to figure drawing sessions when I can, but drawing from my head, I sometimes feel like I'm drawing the same person or face or eyes.

This was from 1991, for some gallery show about Muses. This was supposed to be Melpomene, Muse of tragedy.
