Diaries & Journals > Daily Drawing

Each day for a year I did a drawing in black and white charcoal on the front page of the New York Times. I would sit down with the paper each day and draw what I saw around me. Intimate and personal, these scenes intersect with the headlines and stories of that day's news. Prompted by my daily habit of reading the paper while eating breakfast, I wanted to see what the quotidian routine of describing my life within the context of a historic document might add up to.
All 365 front pages of Daily Drawing were exhibited at the San Jose Museum of Art along with other projects about reading, consuming and daily habits.
