About The Jerusalem Series

“I’m not trying to create art. I’m trying to create religious experiences.”

Jerusalem is not a place, but a mindset.

In 1997 I started drawing on the back of business cards, just to give me something to do while sitting at the bar.

Over time this format got more spiritual in nature. Over time the process got less about social commentary, more about meditation. Eventually I realized art without a transcendent dimension was worthless. 

Over time this became The Jerusalem Series. A spiritual exercise, more than anything else.

I chose the name, “Jerusalem” because I love the idea of there being a truly Holy place, somewhere closer to God than anywhere else. Hopefully though art, we can all create that same place in our own head. Fans of William Blake will know what I’m talking about.

#060: walking around the west village

Postcard sent to Beth Maudlin of Texas, one of my Twitter buddies.

A few days ago, I tweeted out, “The first person to email me wins this original drawing” etc, Beth was the first one to reply. [NB- the tweet has since been deleted].

About the drawing: This time, back in New York City’s West Village in December, 1998, I was shopping for Christmas presents in the snow. It was was one of those moments when life seemed absolutely perfect. Everything was alright in the universe. Those moments had become increasingly non-existent ever since leaving college, it was nice to be back in the flow again.
