Parfrey's Glen - 2013
On August 8th, 2006 I began a series of drawings at Parfrey's Glen, a natural formation near Devil's Lake, Wisconsin. I set out to replicate the action of a motion picture camera moving at a glacial pace - I drew a picture of the landscape, then slightly changed my position and framing. Each of the 31 drawings took 1 to 3 hours, over a period of 13 days.

The Hound & The Musch - 2012
Edie Fake described it : "Untethered from syntax in a cigar roll sunset scratch, Scott Roberts' Grimm adaptation is a Humpty Dumpty hole-in-the-bucket story with an alarmingly high body count."
It can be purchased from/at Quimby's
