Circa ‘79 this may be my earliest rabbit drawing. Even then I was using text in my drawing. It also seems I was very aware of the NYC art scene of that era.
The other day I had an FB conversation with a mommie friend of mine about children’s early art work. With her permission I have transcribed the thread below:
Me: just keep the good ones. scan the others and toss ‘em.
LA: er…what if they’re all good? i mean, i know i’m biased, but she’s got about an 80% success rate over up in here
Me: yr biased. yr a mom. even at 80% there’s still 20% to toss. also the value goes up the fewer there are. If you need me to sort through them let me know.
LA: yes, we need your gimlet eye! next time you’re in la…
Me: haha. ok i’ve got them dead eyes. I will say my elder nephew has been pumping out some good work. finally. His early stuff was a little meh, and fraudulent as I saw marks obviously made by his mother and the preschool lady. that stuff was hardly frame worthy.
I’m glad my mom kept my shit. Where would art be without archivists?
