Ink on Paper, Digitally Manipulated

2000

Begun with the intention of mass distribution through stickers and T-Shirts. Inspired by a true story, the entire work consists of a series of vignettes depicting the simple pleasures of the relationship between the slight, sun-sensitive Frankie and his partner. This concept has since evolved into the basis for a graphic concept embracing the many stories of Joe's wife, Arin, from her extended tour in the trenches of fine dining.

Works on Paper

Joe's skills are founded on his drawing practice. He has produced and sold a broad range of rendered and printed work in a variety of mediums, from pencil sketches to computer graphics. Drawing has also provided a place where Joe's literary and visual impulses can exist together to mutual effect, each elevating the other toward the communication of messages of breadth and complexity less suited to more static media.
