PROLIFIC DINER SLIP DOODLER - ANONYMOUS HAND-DRAWN ART

Item #133

Over 175 unique drawings and doodles from this anonymous amateur artist, mostly on restaurant order slips, exploring and experimenting in a range of themes and drawing styles. Mediums used are ballpoint pen, pencil, markers and collage. Drawings are signed DR and dated between 1988 – 1993. The waiter/artist explores primarily figures and faces in various poses and emotions, Picasso-esque cubism and segmenting the body, and abstraction. On a few drawings are musings about deeper meanings coming through the casual doodles, like “it makes sense but what does it all mean”, “what am I doing” and longer descriptive analyses of the relations of the drawn figures, jotted on the reverse side. The artist also considers societal relations and broader themes like money, art, fashion, and emotions. Included is a portrait of Malcolm X and a drawing entitled Police Brutality. Other themes include clowns, aliens, space travel, the future, devils, “dropping acid on the kitchen floor,” “New York Law,” “passage ways of the mind,” and such thought experiments as “see a person clothed and imagine what they look like naked.” A great collection of a thorough and consistent exploratory personal practice in doodles.
