Maps from Memory
This is one of my favourites, I just had to share it.
At Grad School, late at night in the studio…
My fellow grad student, friend (and brilliant artist) Steve Lambert called over the wall to me: “Are you busy?”
He had to do a drawing for an upcoming charity auction, and proposed that I (a Canadian) draw a map of the United States, and that he (a lifelong Californian), draw a map of Canada from memory.
We set the parameters:
- no references
- a time limit
- One half of a large piece of paper.
This was a fun little project, and is a constant reminder of my need to continuiously educate myself! : )
