Drawing London

This is a piece from college days in 1999. The idea started out from a trip to London where I took a particular journey and took pictures as I went. I then developed these pictures in black and white by hand and collaged them into some kind of loose timeline. I then used this as a reference along with my memory of the journey to sketch a panoramic drawing. The initial lines were rapid and energetic as I recalled the energy and pace of the city. I then worked over these lines with black paint to bring some kind of cohesion to the chaos of lines.
