The Artist's Book-- Ninety-Degree Draft: Art Amidst Science in Antarctica

Today is the day I am launching my new project to raise funds for an edition of the artist's book Ninety-Degree Draft: Art Amidst Science in Antarctica. I am doing it through USA Projects. You can see a video  and find out the benefits of contributing at this site.

I am working with Dutch photographer Reinier Gerritsen to produce editions of this book of drawings and text--the entire drawing Ninety-Degree Draft will be included as well as images of drawings/paintings done on-site and upon return from Antarctica as well as additional text.

Here is the site........

I will keep you posted on the progress!
