3 more makes 30
Last Map: Mirror, Last Map: Beacon, Last Map: Crosslit, each gouache and ink on paper, 11.5″ x 8.25″, 2010
I completed 3 more Last Map drawings in Iceland to total 30, which has been my goal for some time now. These latest drawings reflect my icy surroundings at the time I made them. Hopefully I can exhibit all 30 together in the near future.
Although I prefer to display them all simply taped to the wall, the wear and tear isn’t good for the drawings, so I need to get them framed. I have some ideas for framing them that should provide for some interesting installation opportunities.

-Also, Nicole Pietrantoni (who I met and collaborated with in Iceland) and I plan to be working together again soon under the name Island Projects. We hope to have a website up and running in the near future.
