Ca Pipistrello, graphite on paper

This is a collage of two drawings: a fantasy about a wealthy merchant who loved bats. He would have seen them on Chinese embroidered silk where bats were thought to be good luck. Twisted Venice is an architectural series of six buildings in a neighborhood that exists only in my mind. It is a mixture of humor and homage to the beautiful, eccentric homes of Gothic and Renaissance Venetians. There will be more soon.
