I participated in the Sketchbook Project, a project that is based out of Brooklyn, New York. The participants of the project choose one of several themes offered and fill the supplied sketchbook with the theme. I chose "life underground".
I can't say it's my best work, but it allowed me not to over think every line I put down. Plus, I procrastinated too much and meeting the deadline also forced me to just put images down on paper. Some images are a stretch from the theme but that's ok with me. A fun project and now it's time to concentrate on my oils.
I was born and raised in Toronto. It wasn’t until recently that all of my schooling in art, graphic design and landscape architecture came together in my drawings of Toronto urban scenes.
What some people may find mundane and pass without a second glance, I find beautiful. Sketching is my way to interact with the world and I find that by looking at a place and spending a few hours drawing it, I gain a deeper memory of that environment.
