Rylan Thompson

August 2019 Digital Resident


“Drawing Drawing Drawing Drawing Drawing. I'm using my digital residency to look back on a life obsessed with drawing. Originally I was going to go about 15 years back to show the evolution of work that got me to the present, but I figured why not just go all the way back and tell as complete of a story as I can. There will unfortunately still be gaps in the timeline - obviously a lot of childhood work is gone (I was quite prolific back then), most of my college work has been given away or trashed (I think I even magically sold a piece or two), and plenty of other work since then has been sold or just lost along the way. That being said, there's still plenty left around to get a pretty good perspective of how my work has evolved over time.” -Rylan Thompson
