This series of photo-based work represents a synthesis of my love of film noir and my love of Georges Seurat's black conté crayon drawings, done by him in the mid-1880's.  Seurat's drawings are dark and mysterious and very photographic in the sense that they contain almost no visible contour lines; shapes are defined entirely by changes in tone. The images in my series are composites of altered images that I appropriated from old photos, TV shows, movies, and photos of and by myself.  I developed a procedure in Photoshop to mimic the look of the original drawings, down to the type of textured, laid paper that Seurat used.  As a final homage, I then draw on the prints with black conté crayon.
