In 2004 I began a daily drawing ritual which has continued to this day. Every morning I make two drawings on pieces of A4 paper. One is a non-objective scribble based on whatever song happens to be on my iPod. The second depicts a stick-like-figure. Sometimes this figure is alone on the page, other times its amidst clutter or part of a pattern or floating through a dense urban space. Over the years I have amassed a huge archive of these drawings which function as a visual journal. The drawings in this sketchbook were made one a day, over a few months and depict my doodle-based stick-figures in different situations and relationships to each other. They are meant to be anonymous and generic so that all audiences can identify with their plight.
I have also created animations as well as iPhone apps in which these stick-like figures appear. My practice is diverse and I work in many media simultaneously. For more information and to see other works please visit my website at www.jodyzellen.com
