I just want to thank all of you who I spoke to at the show. It was a fantastic experience. (I had no idea so many people knew what Tyvek was)! And hopefully the first of many. One thing I have done (or in the process of doing) is alter my name. After realizing there are a plethora or me out there I will now go (or try to) by my full name which is Scott Stevenson Wilson.

This is my back up drawing for the Armory Show (on the very real chance Airship did not fit). Babel, as in Tower of, is definitively smaller than Airship but clocking in at 6.5 x 5 feet, it is still a good size. This was a learning experience. I avoided all of the pitfalls I encountered in Airship yet created a whole slew of new ones. Most important of all is that there really is a limit to the detail allowed.
Amazing exciting news this week. I am currently showing one of my drawings, Airship, at the NYC Armory Show. Please stop by Ricco/Maresca Gallery booth #258 on Pier 92. Its one of those things you kinda need to see in person. Why? Well for one thing its 10 feet long! Yes this is what happens when I spend 2 months on a single drawing.

The most common question I receive is if I only draw on napkins. No. But I really like the material. Anyway, I do larger works on more traditional materials. They just take longer. A lot longer. What was a few hours turns into a few weeks. Not that it is not worth it. But I like the spontaneity of the smaller works. For whatever reason, I tend not to show them. Don't ask. I don't know why. I like keeping things to myself? I don't play nice with others? Who knows...who cares. Anyway here is one of my favorite recent larger works. While being overall larger (22x30) the drawing is built on the same scale...just a lot more of it.
All praise the EES! The Electric Eye of Science!
(I really should get out more.)

Many of these drawings are of nothing in particular. Almost more of an visual/conceptual exercise. Start with a classic geometric form (a pyramid) and deconstruct it while keeping it whole. Create an object that has no definitive outside planes. Or one that is shown to be moving through itself in space. The general idea is that it is both inside out and not simultaneously. Which for me is the answer to the question of how do you get a bigger object in a smaller one. At any rate it is a hell of a way to kill time.
