When Matthew Langley asked me if he could publish my work in the first round of affordable digital prints at 246 Editions, I quickly agreed. Matt has a good eye and fine attention to detail, and the Peter Dayton print I received in the mail this week is stunning. Now, after much dithering about what image to submit, I’ve decided to use a drawing-collage from one of my sketchbooks. I hate to admit that I watch TV while I draw, but I’ve found that it keeps me from overthinking the images, and so every night I work on my books in front of the boob tube. I scanned the pages into the computer, then composited them in Photoshop. Big thanks to John Davis and JH, a low-profile work-on-paper collector who stopped by over the long weekend, for helping me decide what to select. Here are scans of a few spreads. The books are nothing fancy, just 8.5″ x 5.5″ perfect-bound vinyl-covered books from Utrechts.
