Calligraphy and Drawings by Thomas Ingmire
San Francisco, CA, 2013
5.5 x 7.5 inches, 36 pages
The December drawings were all done in Cafe Puccini. Each month I try to add or change my approach to creating the pages. Some months I have used color. Other months I have pasted collage elements on the pages before beginning. In months where I have not made this kind of beginning, I wait for something to happen, or just enjoy observing how the act of drawing each day changes what I do or how I see a page. In mid month of this book, for no explicable reason, I happened to change my process by creating the drawings before writing the date; the result being that the drawing and writing seemed to be more integrated both in character and in composition.
