The Big Scramble: What was/ is in my mind, what I want(ed) to do, what will be /has been launched. By the time you read this you may already know more than I did/do.
From the middle-1990s to early 2022, I have completed or will have started 9 series of graphite drawings on translucent .07 mil. polyester substrates ranging from 18x18 inches / 46x46 centimeters to 36x50 inches /91.5x127 centimeters with the titles Modes of Escape, Misery of Men, Dark Storms, Art Dust, Rage-Hope Poetry Collaboration, Night Watch, Dark Beauty, Come Close and Blind Spot.
The starting point to see these series is https://www.johnwtomlinson.com/drawing-series
There are smaller graphite and digital drawings and a few short digital drawing animation studies, some with soundworks, for several of the series that can be seen now on the Instagram Feed of my main website.
The Series has become the instigating focal point of an imperative I have promised to undertake to write a clear statement of my discoveries in making the drawings about what they mean to me and what all art-making means to me and how they are created in a spirit and purpose that circumvents art world marketing as its driving force and goal.
From this date the Big Scramble will continue at mostly a snail's pace; however, in due time it will attain turtle speed.
