I just got “buzzed” by the delivery man. A book just arrived that was illustrated by Greg Clarke called Dogs A-Z Address Book. Each letter entry is accompanied by the simple and sober portrait of a dog such as Erkut Ergun (Turkish Diplomat), or Tilda Tanner (Agnostic). The color palette is restrained as in all of Clarke’s work—orange, tan, olive, and yellow ochre—but the brush textures are so loose and obvious, they must be visible from space!
After the last two books I’ve picked up, watch for my work to loosen up.
