5 Drawings:

Hi all,
Hope everyone is safe, healthy, well, and making due as best they can within these strange circumstances we are all in.
Sorry I haven't posted sooner. I have been in touch with Bill but wanted to make sure I posted here too. I am still attempting to finish up the project I had been working on with the collaged drawings of the construction site. Hopefully I'll have that finished by the 21st. That said I have also done the 5 drawings related to the present moment we are in. I have an ongoing series of drawings I've been working on for a few months in which I pull text from my text communications with the people in my life and then I pair them with images. Bill suggested it might be a good idea to continue this project within the context of COVID19. Initially I felt reluctant but then I started and now I can't stop so I guess he was right! Anyway, here are my five drawings for that (I know they're not due yet but I thought I'd go ahead and post them since I haven't posted anything before now) and if I have the other piece finished in time I'll post it on here too.
Also, I am giving an Artist Talk this Thursday for Duke Arts. I'm currently at home 24/7 with my 7-year-old twins and I have never given an artist talk remotely so I have no idea what it will be like and I'm a bit nervous! If any of you are interested in tuning in it would be nice to see some familiar faces! Attaching the details on that below just in case anyone wants them!
All my best,

  1. These are powerful Mariah! Yes, I'm glad you found the time to make them! I assume you're using black paper with white pencil?
    I'll alert the class to your talk.
