Portfolio > Talking Heads

The Talking Heads series started in the spring of 2017 after Trump was elected. I needed to justify my time watching the news so I started sketching. At first, I thought of it as a way of practicing quick figurative drawings. It quickly became a way for me to distill the events, words and images from the daily news cycle. Along the way, I developed rules for the project. Each piece is signed with the date (no spaces, no zeros) and MK. Quotes from the days headlines are recorded. Background images - government buildings, monuments, etc. become part of the drawings along with specific journalists and government officials. Sumi-e, markers and watercolors are my medium of choice. With the daily onslaught of trauma, the series continues.
