The intention of these two small pieces was to be quick and loose. I tend to be overly detailed with even small pieces like these and they usually turn out to be tight, lifeless images. Well for these guys, I wanted to complete them in one 3 hour sessions and not to be worried too much about the smaller stuff. It worked with the brussel sprouts but to be honest, the asparagus took two sessions.
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.
