B/W B:6 - The Absence Of Grey.

I'm pleased to announce that I've started my annual Black & White Series (MWM B/W B:6). Every year I switch up the process with different techniques, paper sizes, subject matter and aesthetics. I've spent weeks thinking on it, and finally today decided to return to strict black and white ink with no shades of grey. The past 3 Series have been full spectrum greyscale with different concentrations of ink, washes, and layering. I've enjoyed the results, but in an attempt to create new work that challenges me to discover new visual solutions, it seemed right to take it back to the basics. The trick is creating depth, shading, and range with only two hues. Easier said than done, but lots of fun. Stay tuned for the evolution. Click-Zoom.
