The five pages of this letter were just a sign that he was there, in that place, at that time, and that he could make marks to say something about being there and let me know because I was a thousand miles away.

Here is the third in a series of drawings and writings that came to me in a letter from Devin probably in 1986. Here he discovers that he can write on both sides of the paper. The face is a box and the lines are twisted as if there was space to be filled and something had to fill it. I see some script and a profile, some attempts at language and expression in the marks on the left side. Not only does Devin realize that he can draw on both sides of the paper, he demonstrates this just by drawing, just by marking it up. He's spewing out his guts in lines because there is a blank sheet of paper and something has to go on it, something has to deface that other side.
