things are evolving, and moving in directions I didn’t anticipate…

Autumn: Intentions, Ink on Khadi Cotton Rag Paper, 3.5 x 5ft
My first piece at this scale. Bored of working at my usual 18x24in/ 20x30in , I decided to take the leap to larger works. I inked a great deal of this with 0-6 brushes before I realized the inherent masochism… (not that it mattered anyway! ha)
In the beginning, work at this scale took about two weeks. My advice to anyone interested in working on large scale pieces but intimidated by the size: stop procrastinating. You can’t work up to it, just start.

These impressive series of graphite drawings on matchbooks by Krista Charles are based on the the photographs provided by Google Street View. Her interest in the matchbooks was when she retrieved a bag of old vintage matchbooks from her grandfather-in-law’s home when he was downsizing to another place to live. After searching for the companies advertised on the matchbooks, she found out that some were still in business, closed down or even replaced by a new building or a parking lot. She draws a pencil sketch of whatever is on that location which gives the matchbooks a whole new story to it.
