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.
