Represented by Galerie Jan Dhaese, Gent, Belgium.

The drawings on this page were done between 2012 and the present, on travels across Europe, North and South America, Asia, Australia and India. A series done from the passenger seat of a Mercedes Sprinter Van as we traveled on the Autobahn across Germany, and into Denmark. Another created while driving through the Eastern United States in a Ford Econoline, from Connecticut to Virginia, New York City to Ohio. Later series track routes in Nova Scotia, Canada, on the route from Halifax to Cape Breton, through Spanish deserts, along the west coast from Vancouver to San Diego, and in northeast regions of India. The road, like the river, is ever changing and ever the same.

  2. Lee,
    I really like your drawings and or sketches…that’s awesome you are having an exhibit about now for some of your art…

    (FYI, if you vist my facebook page, you’ll find a mess of computer “scribble art”…may own artistic efforts are rather pathetic, but either way I enjoyed your page…and again, seriously my own measly artistic efforts are best as being described as “scribble art.”)

    I met Lee somewhere around 2001 or 2002 in Berlin. After asking him if he would like to draw me a little doodle it came out something like the one with the minimalistic “TT” Bridge.
    Always loved that piece of Paper, Nice to see where it comes from.

    # 28, (to valencia?): looks like 405 North through Sepulveda Pass, Mullholland Drive bridge spanning the divide. I travel that way every day to school and back. Awesome work.

  6. david behl says:

    The drawing with windmills looks like you referenced Van Gogh’s style of pen and ink drawing. Was that on purpose? or does it reveal another layer of iconography?

  7. Nick says:

    love them!!! Really like the ones with looks like oil paint towards the bottom(the last long one I think). Also really love your past two albums!! They are getting me through a hard time in my life right now(just say no people!,ha)don’t know if you are reading this but been a very big fan of yours since 13 going on 26 now, saw you with Sonic Youth at Voodoo fest circa 2004 Nurse tour(got kicked outta the marching band while in HS because it was the same week as our competion, it was sooo worth it though, you guys kicked ass!!). Come to the south more often please!!! Somewhere, like say Hattiesburg, MS. But anyway, nice work!

  8. Toze says:

    Your drawings have a line expressivity so powerful that we can almost feel your thoughts… 🙂
    Hope to see you in Braga, next month 🙂
    All the best,
    Toze
