I am working on a new personal project that I view as a collaboration between myself and my family members and close friends. I have asked folks to give me a location in Louisville that is important or special to them and explain why. It could be a location of a place that no longer exists, even. Then I am visiting that place and spending some time there doing sketches and taking photographs. Finally, I am combining the words told to me with a drawing I create. I hope to do 15-20 of these drawings and publish the final results in book format. I plan to debut this collection of drawings at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE) this June as well as show several of the pieces in an exhibit in May in conjunction with Preservation Louisville’s Preservation Art Month.
