I jog and ride my bicycle a lot. These two methods of transportation dictate a certain slowness and are my primary means of sourcing subjects. With pencil and paper, I record structural information by hand while my senses record the experience of place. Direct observation is necessary in order to sustain the vitality of my subjects and to map space. The house drawings were all made on location. The large amounts of negative space comment on the low viewpoint the drawings were made from (sitting on the sidewalk) and also the idea of injecting more open space into an urban environment. I tend to isolate the individual in order to celebrate the idiosyncrasies of its architecture.
