"Here’s a few ink drawings on paper from an on going series called (after Charles Mingus Pithecanthropus Erectus 1956). His music is fascinating, sketchy and unpredictable, and has been  playing in the background while making drawings on the coffee table at home away from studio. I’ve always thought my studio was a large toolbox, I guess the paintings would be the packed and ready to go toolbox…then the drawings are all the small bolts and nuts that I have to look for, join together, knock into place, polish, only to take apart again."
