Ted Berrigan

Part of why I'm using this blog is an effort to develop a new style I can apply to my paid work. I've painted myself into corners (no pun intended) sometimes with the dense linework and am trying to experiment to find a looser style that would be a little more fun and a little less headache. The last few posts have been me reverting back to the dense stuff which is still fun from time to time. On this one, I must've tried about 5 different styles before I ended up back where I began. Maybe it's true about tigers and stripes. And I put the colored and uncolored together because I think I like the non-colored more. Ha! What can you do?

Anyway, my good friend Hannah kindly loaned me a book of Ted Berrigan's poetry which I enjoyed a great deal and this is my way of saying thanks. Thanks!

Pat Falls Through the Kitchen Floor

Pat's a big, dopey guy I worked with in Philly who, apparently, fell through Tim's mom's kitchen floor.

Party Foul!

A commission to accompany a story wherein the evil Director of the Friends of the Free Library of Philadelphia unknowingly asked if the volunteers setting up the annual book sale were (something worse than stupid) to their faces, when, in fact, they were all mentally incapacitated. The result was many hilarious months of anger management classes.
