Get your balls out

Get your balls out

​Part of the Radio Flyer drawing series
​Sharpie and marker on paper
​22 inches by 36 inches
​2012

The Radio Flyer drawing series began as a proposal for an installation, but then I liked the drawings so much I kept going with it. This is one of the later drawings in the series, they get older as you scroll through. It's a simple story: a rolling suitcase turns into a Radio Flyer Wagon, grows wings, learns to fly, and goes out in the world, makes friends, joins gangs, meets bullies, discovers sex, gets bored and occasionally lonely.

​In this drawing and the Bullies drawing just before this, you can see the suitcase is still morphing into a Radio Flyer.

This drawing relies on the full narrative more than some of the others in the series by including a rolling suitcase.  More than anything I was tickled with the idea of this little suitcase trying to get in on the action.​

After the "Unsuccessful Threesome" drawing, I really had to do a "successful" one.  ​

Not a finished drawing at all, but still an important sketch for this series. I covered some new ground with shading techniques so it feels like an important sketch to me.​

Take-off

This was the second drawing in the series and what got everything - truly - off the ground with this series. This drawing made the wagons more into characters than I anticipated, and it was after doing this one that I decided the​ wagons needed to go out and have more adventures, and so I began the Radio Flyer series of drawings. 

My boyfriend owns this one.​

The very first drawing in the series and the one that launched the rest.  This was originally intended as a proposal for an installation​, but then I liked the drawings so much I kept going with it.  It's a simple story: a rolling suitcase turns into a Radio Flyer Wagon, grows wings, learns to fly, and goes out in the world, makes friends, joins gangs, meets bullies, discovers sex, gets bored and occasionally lonely.
