From illustrations for magazine articles in the 1980s to large sized portraits, MerryJoy has worked with graphite since the beginning of her career as an artist. For her award-winning 2004 nonfiction book, The Corpse on Boomerang Road, she created many of the portraits in graphite, using scratched and blurred printouts from old microfilmed newspaper photos as her models. A by MerryJoysample of the portrait of H. M. Hogg is at the left, the microfilm printout picture on the left, and the finished portrait on the right. A small sampling of her graphite work is showcased here.
