    "The drawings were done in ink on paper using whatever pen was around, usually a Uniball Vision Micro or Pigma Micron. The paintings are acrylic paint," writes Zak Smith in a note at the end of his new memoir. "Although there are no photos, there are two images that are derived from drawings that have been transferred and altered in a chemical darkroom using a process called contact printing. It brings out the texture of the paper and the color in the ink and makes the drawings blurry in an interesting way."
