During the summer of 2009 I began carrying around small blank notecards to make ink drawings. I ended up using many of them for a writing project www.cuppingatlanta.com that was published at roughly the same time. It was a great excercise and helped me slowdown and identify and capture a few fleeting moments. There are quite a number of places where these images are from, Toronto, Canada; Antigua, Guatemala; Los Frios, Domincan Republic; Los Angeles, California; Boston, Massachusetts; Atlanta, Georgia; and a few others. Looking back at them all at once is a great reminder of the many exciting adventures I embarked upon during this time. Much of this travel was driven by the writing project I mentioned above, some of it was work related, some to visit and spend quality time with family members.
