Description

Places You Go Alone, is my first art book, a 20-page collection of graphite illustration from the last 5 years.

For years I have collected art books from my favorite artists and have always said, "one day, I will make my own art book." But for years I did not because I always felt my art was not quite where I wanted it to be. Once I removed my Ego from the situation I realized that it was not as important to get my art to a certain, self-constructed quality and place, but more about the journey getting there... I made it my New Years resolution to complete the art book, which I completed just before the one year mark. I shortly thereafter totally restructured the entire book and then again. So, after 3 proofs and two years later I have arrived at where I want THIS piece of art to be.

The title, Places You Go Alone, refers each of our own sanctuaries, or places we go for peace, sanity, or happiness. A place no one else can go. For me, my art is this place. It is where I spend my most intimate moments with own mind, free of outside opinion in heavily focused contemplation. I rarely think about what I am drawing while I am in this place, but rather everything else in my life and imagination. It is a place without time. It is not literally a place I am alone, as I often draw on the bus or at crowded cafe's, but my mind is somewhere in solitude while I create. Places You Go Alone is a small window, offering a glimpse into my place of sanctuary. I hope it encourages you to explore yours. Enjoy.
