Feel my way … outline judgements … I made some pictures is a first person chronological account of an ongoing (three years and counting) group of serial drawings. Incorporating illustrations I trace some of the development of seriality as a drawing method that facilitates and identifies research questions; however my tale is also a paradox in that it is concerned with research methods that are not then positioned to answer formal research questions. Theory, drawing practice and drawing fictions are intertwined. I encounter the early pioneering work of Rhoda Kellogg and her notion of Aggregates in children’s drawing and I acknowledge The Fictional Museum of Drawing as a repository, rationale and conceptual space for my textual (drawing fictions) and drawn works.
