Leaving Union Station

Pencil on Watercolor Paper 12" x 14"

2005

A drawing completed for Joe's father- a lover of all things railroad and a child of late-Depression Era Chicago. Based on the well-known series of photographs by FSA/OWI photographer Jack Delano taken at the cusp of 1942-43 brilliantly documenting the faces and sights of home front America as it began to exert itself in the Second World War, and with it an important portion of Joe's father's childhood.

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.
