In the summer of 1977, I moved to Seattle, Washington. Originally a move to be able to spend more time climbing mountains with Steve Dockter, I decided to try and exhibit some of the drawings I'd been working on for the past seven years. With the help of my friend/mentor from WACO days, Willam Thurman, and the great curator Rolon "Bert" Garner, I was able to get a show (together with Mike Hascall) at the not-for-profit space, and/or Gallery on First Hill (around the corner from the Comet Tavern).
Following is a group of photos of the drawings as installed at and/or Gallery, December 1978:
The first summer I was living in Seattle, I took a lot of photographs. Some of these were pasted together to later become the basis of large drawings. All of the drawings above have their origins in photographs. This was right about the time cheap 3-hour photo processing services became available, and I would take a dozen shots of a building or a person and then paste them together to form a large single image. Others were xeroxed and bound together as a sort of "flip book".
This group taken of the CBS Evening News became a little Flash movie 20 years later.
