scroll cities.

ball point pen on bond paper
personal project

Drawing cities is something I’ve done since I was a child. Initially, the drawings started out on sheets of 8.5”x11” paper, but that size started to grow. I started taping sheets together. Once one sheet was filled up, I’d add another. Eventually, The scale grew to about 3’ wide by about 60’ long rolls of banner paper. As you move along the scrolls, you see how my drawing skills change over time – from scribbles to something more recognizable. According to the people who have seen it, it tells a story about what was going on in my life. For example, I had to memorize the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States in fifth grade. As you unroll it you would see phrases dispersed throughout the drawing. So far, I have two rolls that are fully complete at a length of about 60 feet each and one more in progress. They are by no means my best drawings or design work, but the significant amount of time I have put into this holds much importance to me.
