This series is an exploration of New York City. Consumed by the signs and notes I find just going from point A to B; notes let in Laundromats, rules for trash, spray painted walls, I began to document and draw them. My process is simple. I go for 4-5 hour walks to map out my neighborhood weekly and document hand marks through signage, graffiti or accident. I am working to find my place in a new home through drawing. Unlike my other work, which has been an exploration of intimate interior spaces, this project is external process Something about the city has forced me to adapt to looking beyond the space I occupy to start to find how I fit into a greater whole. Drawing is my connection to the world and is exciting to find the ways people are present around me without necessarily being there.
All work is pen and ink and 5″ x 7″.
