1: why am i awake? 2: why am i drawing?

there's no where else like elsewhere

As our final project in Suzanne's class this semester, we spent several days in downtown Greensboro at Elsewhere. There is really no way to describe Elsewhere because it is truly a one of a kind place. This problem is exactly why we were there, and provided for a perfect assignment: map out the space, and create a sense of how it feels to be there. We each neon-taped off an area to map out and the process began.
After spending some time observing our spaces, we each created a list from memory of everything we saw. Above is my list of items, and below are two images I also observed. This exercise was done to see how things stood out in our memory.

This is the map I created to represent my space at Elsewhere. I decided to make one image of the entire space. I thought this would be effective because it would give a sense of how much stuff was in Elsewhere, and to think that this merely a six foot area along the wall of two three-story buildings full of anything and everything.

Interior Perspective

This was the first interior one point perspective I rendered. We divided the space and experimented with different types of media. I am pleased with the outcome, but there is still room for improvement. Liz Brown later did a renovation of my drawing.

going green

This is my page from an Alphabet book we created in class for a competition through Earth Fair. We were each given a letter and had to create a page illustrating "going green".

adventures at ELSEWHERE

Smiling Phone.
I found a slew of these rolling smiling phones at Elsewhere, and took a liking to them. Its hard to resist the colorful smiling faces. I really enjoyed the phone booth area, and later decided to map that space out.

Flying Frog??
This was hanging from a line of string spanning the dining area at Elsewhere. Interesting, and very cute!
On one of our morning experiences it was a bit chilly, so a few of us ended up in the front display window catching some heat from the sun. While sitting there I found it appropriate to draw the "N" dangling in my face from a clothes line that said CLOTHESLINE. Very cool interesting, as it was made from fabric cut and glued onto paper.
