My drawings could be organized into three groups:
|The View looking Southwest
|The Mandatory Picture of Jim
The second set of sketches have to do with the fact that the High Line sits on top of the railroad entrance to NYC. It's basically been hidden from view and not something you'd often see. Its huge, it's vast, it's incredible how many trains and tracks there are. It's all about vanishing points and perspective and finding quick ways to imply the complexity.
|Kevin and Maike
|Brian on percussion
The third set are about the people I met because I was sketching. Kevin and Maike came and chatted with me as I drew. We must have spent a half hour talking and enjoying the strange openness that sketching in public creates. They both sketch and I hope they'll be joining us.
Brian was drumming and chanting. Music adds a magical ingredient to sketching and I happily drew him. He seemed delighted with the sketch when I showed it to him.
