Catalogue Note

"I’d always loved making drawings and I never knew what to draw. I started to collect these cartoons and got some 160 lb. hot-press darche paper and a #6 pencil (it’s best to know your materials before you make art). So I started to re-draw my favorite cartoons. Whitney Darrow had a style that I liked. He drew cartoons mostly for the 'New Yorker.' But some would show up in 'Playboy' and 'The New York Review of Books' (Darrow it turned out was an early roommate of Jackson Pollock)."
