The idea of a portrait

And the breakdown of what is the process of making.  

Showing all stages at once and st the same time - questioning. The role of tools (the camera in the form of the phone where the internet is integral. The drawing board as not only a support, but an arena of planning, and pushed still further to be the very frame thru which the work is viewed. Nodding, admittedly to raushcheberg and twombly but developed thru my own studio explorations over the past five years. A serious, yet carefree drawing style if I were to describe my portrait and I think just as important are the mid sketch note-jot: phone as documentary/as the camera/as a vehicle for new/and rapid information/as a direct source of terror/of anxiety/I can't take my eyes of(f) the goddamn /trainwreckn
