Sketch Book

 

In 2016, metal fabricator Cory Fass stripped his chopper motorcycle down to the naked frame. When he welded, I observed. I asked questions while he was grinding steel and polishing aluminum. I learned about motorcycles, design, craftsmanship, and a lot about Cory Fass. 

To Say Something is sixteen lessons, sixteen things I learned or confirmed about saying something through visual elements during the hours spent witnessing a custom chopper come to life in a Kansas City double door garage. This class is to help photographers, visual communicators, draw closer to their unique expression, to point to something, to say something. 

Emoji

The Apple emoji keyboard has some great illustrations for short hand emotion, but as an artist, I would rather use my own creations to communicate than pull from a pool used by millions. I saved these portraits of Jeffrey in iPhone Photos where I can select one right from the iMessage keyboard.
