West 4th Street (No. 1/25)


When I first started doing these drawings, I'd spend 5-10 minutes on each one. After about two weeks of drawing every day, my speed increased exponentially. I was now making drawings in 10-30 seconds, and managing to capture essential lines of the things and people I saw. I had about 15 seconds to draw this woman, waiting with her luggage, at the West 4th Street station. I think we were waiting for a B train. She must have been waiting for an F. There was something that intrigued me about the cross of her legs and her posture. I only saw her for a few seconds, but I remember her clearly because I drew her.

• Unframed piece measures 13" x 16"
• Letterpress printed in an edition of 25, and then hand watercolored, so each of the 25 finished images is actually different.
• This listing is for the specific image you see in the accompanying photographs.

These drawings are part of a series entitled "Everything is Somewhere". They are blind line contour drawings I made all over New York City in the summer of 2014. Each drawing was made into a plate, which I then letterpress printed, and each finished piece is hand watercolored, making each image in the edition of 25 unique.
