The Very First ErasuresNovember 27, 2013

I happened to open up my previous sketchbook and found the very first erasures that I did in there. You can see that they were much more representational and the later ones are much more abstract.

The first one looks like a fish and the other one is based on what we used to do as kids – which we called ‘skitching’. Skitching was only done in winter on a snowy or ice covered road. You would hold onto the back bumper of a car – while your friend would drive and you would skate along the road on your shoes and then let go when you had enough or (heaven forbid) you ran into a dry spot on the road.
