nature vs. man: an artist challenge
We were in Verizon Wireless for around an hour and a half last night; enough time for me to do these two sketches, plus a few more if I had had the energy. I can't imagine what it would be like to work in this type of environment. Not only did it seem stressful last night, but I also find it extremely sterile, I was struggling to find things to draw. Danny Gregory is so right when he writes in The Creative License "when drawing nature you discover how bland and uniform are man's creations. Only God can make a tree. Would you rather draw a person or their car? A skyscraper or a tree? A computer or an apple?" From my experience at Verizon, I know I'd much rather draw a tree than a cell phone.
