Take a Hike to Pencil Mountain

Jessie, AKA Pencil Mountain, has so many wonderful drawings that I had a hard time selecting what to feature. Her drawings have a range - some of them are straightforward interactions between characters, while others are less representational and focus on mark making.

With the scope of Jessie’s work, there seems to be an overarching theme of demise. One person is sending another to the grave, and even some of the flora seem like it’s wilting. My favorite part of her drawings are the skulls, gravestones (I think) that are peppered throughout her more abstracted works.
