The drawing on the wall is a Top 10 that I was working on. I make drawings of different people's Top 10 LP's. I also make a list of my own Top 10 each week, a sort of diaristic practice, and some of these get drawn. This is one of mine from the week of October 16, 2005. I was in London then, installing a show at the Approach Gallery to open at the end of the week. Lotsa nice record shops in London, that's for sure. I finished this drawing the next day and sent it off to White Columns, to be auctioned off in
their benefit in April. The birthday of Matthew Higgs (the director of W.C. and a friend) falls within the week of October 16.
We went for the generic dude-with-a-brush pose....
