Kenmore Square

An 8th floor balcony view of Kenmore Square and the famous Citgo sign. I began the drawing on a single sheet and expanded outwards continuously onto 2 more sheets.

The final size is approximately 9 x 18," pen on graph paper.

Click the image above for a larger view.

A detail. This was the 2nd sheet of paper I spilled over onto. I love the scaffolding on the Citgo sign.

A detail of the first part of the drawing. I would constantly loose my place in the image. There is an overwhelming density to the line.

Awesome! But, jeez, how long did this take? Must have been very zen to do all that noodling.

Indeed. It took a rather meditative 3 hours.
