Dragon/Tree Self-Portrait, 1995

This piece was done on a 4 X 4' piece of paper.  In the center is an eyeball, in which a graphite self-portrait is the pupil.  Encircling the eye is a tree and dragon.  Aluminum foil and waxed paper circles decorate the background.

Drinking Fountain of the Future, 1995

This was an actual hallway and drinking fountain right outside my Elements of Design classroom at the RC College at U of M Ann Arbor.  I sat there the whole time while I created this graphite drawing.

Charcoal drawings of sheet-covered boxes and other objects, 1996

During one of my drawing courses at U of M, we spent a lot of time drawing boxes covered with sheets and other white objects.  These exercises really improved my ability to see small gradations in value.  I can also more accurately draw angles in real life.
