1/11/14 – 2/2/14: Hands & Pants V

MOCO Gallery in Oakland, CA presents "Hands and Pants", a broad collaborative venture, employing 80+ of my artist peers. I drew either hands or pants (blue-jean-clad waist-down shod figures) or both, in a simple pen-and-ink style on 8"x10" Bristol paper. An invited artist was given the hands and/or pants and asked to complete the figure in any way the artist saw fit. My original intent was to create a collective storyboard using the "Hands and Pants" motif as a common recognizable character engaged in a variety of manifestations. However, the returned collaborations have gone far beyond my expectations in sheer artistic variety, producing an extended family of unique, individual beings.
