What the Leap Year project is.

The Leap Year I am going to show you is a series of drawings. I made each day, in Leap Year of 2008. The drawings actually started the day January 6th. I had just got back from being at my parents house for a month in Michigan. When I returned to Massachusetts I had no job, it was winter and I wanted something to pass the time. I decided drawing every day would at least fill up an hour of my day.

How it works: I'll send you an email every week on Wednesday. If you see one you like, email me. Let me know which one you want. First come first serve. The shipping is included, they are not framed, each are originals. In with your money, please include a note describing why you picked the one you did. In with the drawing I will tell you a story about its origins.

Confusing the Situation

Moved to the Desert

Good Evening! and to some I bet a good morning to ya!

A little later than normal, but hey! Better late than never!

At this point. I post the drawings and I can remember what was happening during this specific time of the year personal, social, work, school dreams, and yes the weather as well. An amazing thing to be able to recollect the recent past through my drawings, and even more worth a bat of an eyelash, is that some of you want to join in on the fun.

Lets not forget that some of the great parts about this project is the fact that it involves the mail. Time passes in its use. We can look at these old letters in the future and remember how much a stamp was. The letters we exchange are a secret moment. Time to share something private and sincere. That in our current time is a wonderful treat. If you do not want to look back at these letters. Because you don't want to save them, well that is your choice as well. But remember that letter writing is a dying art, not like when they say painting is dead, but truth. Cold hard truth, the post office announced recently that they were going to stop Saturday mail delivery, the rates are set to possible go up 25%, and most likely the last person you communicated with outside a face-to-face conversation was via text message. So do take part.

Enjoy and remember, I will be waiting for something other than junk mail until we meet again.
