Artist Statement

For my series All Over Coffee, I draw from life and straight to ink. I focus mostly on cityscapes and outdoor scenes, but in 2008, after five years of publishing the strip weekly, I wanted to create a different body of work-still drawn from life, but more studio focused. I began collecting small toys and placing them around my work area, which led to a series of toy drawings and the first issue of my art book series, Album. (My earlier print releases with 20x200 are from that book.) This print is a crossover piece between the two series. For All Over Coffee, I like to work outside of the studio. Though I adore my studio, it is a place of focus and discipline, a place where I get work done. But for generating ideas, I like to be out walking and surrounded by people. When I was creating the Album work, I was thinking about the repetition of process, how I'd been doing the same series for so many years and part of me was rebelling. That's where the stickie on the wall came from. I wrote "I am not an industry" and stuck it on the wall as a reminder that I didn't have to do the same thing all the time. Every day I would look at that stickie and chuckle, which led to drawing the scene and publishing it as an All Over Coffee strip. I love this piece because it's a tongue-in-cheek self reference, and because it's a bridge between All Over Coffee and the new body of work that would become Album. This piece is an important part of my newest book, Everything is its Own Reward, and the stickie is still on my wall.
