SKETCHES FOR COMMISSIONED ILLUSTRATION JOBS
I’ve often approached my “sketches” for commissioned illustrations for books and newspapers and magazines as spontaneous little gesture drawings, using a dip pen and wet black ink on beefy sheets of drawing paper to see what I might think about a given subject (“MOVE THE PEN! IT KNOWS WHAT TO DO!"). And I’ve always seen these “preliminary drawings” as ends in and of themselves, Finished Art for the Printed Page or Gallery Wall.
