Drawings by Katie Lyle & Words by Jacquelyn Ross

“Now you’ve attached a folder of drawings—doodles you’re making on yellow copy paper—and the choreography transforms into a wavering line, brazen and strange, brave and uninvited. Are these the open-book thoughts of a woman contained? Drawings of cats, hats and body parts; horses, muscles, breasts and bugs…”

Inspired by the drawings of Toronto artist Katie Lyle, this book features Lyle’s works alongside new writing by Jacquelyn Ross. Channelling dreams, teevee, teenage romance and the absurd, Drawings on Yellow Paper reflects on the relationship between drawing and writing (a conversation between friends).
