    Here's some recent and less than recent sketchbook entries for you to view. It's not graffiti so don't get pissed. Move on if you don't appreciate my busy hands.

    ^Thanks.
    I see it as a morphing of architecture and graffiti. They both relate very well.
    I see most of my drawings as either plans or sections of buildings, or both overlapping. Then, some of my drawings I see as arial views of architecture and landscaping interacting to form a fractal pattern. Look at a parking lot from the sky with some random cars about interacting with the grid of the light posts and how that bisects a series of buildings hugging a river. Those random geometries intrigue me. You can zoom in and out any distance and a new set of geometries will emerge.
    I dont purposely go and draw these ideas, but those moments excite me creatively ,and then my drawings seem to have that same quality. It is subconsciously coming out through meditative drawing.

    i totally agree.

    i actually took a 2 week course this summer on architectural drawing.
    it was very interesting and i think it helped me on my overall drawing style. i think it takes a good mind to design some amazing houses/buildings.

    Thanks.
    well, if they did then It wouldn't be that interesting anymore.
    But, i know what your saying. Most people post a bad throwup and ask how to make it better. I'm beyond those early stages.
    I'll post some paintings later this week. They're not as good in my opinion, but I wont stop until until they are. I'm still learning.
