SequentialArtGallery presents Gregory Tozian’s “Little Notebooks of the Damned”, a collection of paper and canvas giclée prints reproducing imagery from Tozian’s travel notebooks. “Little Notebooks…” opens this Thursday, November 1st, with an artist’s reception from 6pm to 10pm.

During his extremely limited free time, Tozian spent a year channeling his imagination into pen-and-ink illustrations in various travel notebooks – “thousand-yard-stare association”, he calls it – while taking brief respites in assorted dives, drinking bourbon or coffee. A practice he took up initially he says, “Because it was cheaper than psychiatric help.”

The original two-page illustrations were created in Japanese notebooks, with an old German-made fountain pen, and “ink from the oldest purveyor in the world (from Paris, of course).” The show consists of giclée reproductions of the two-page spreads – complete with the dividing center line – on both canvas and high quality paper.

“Little Notebooks of the Damned” will be on display throughout the month of November.
