Sep '06 - Dec '09
I decide to leave town on Thursday to get away form the hustle and bustle of car dependency and shopping strip escapades of suburbia life. A friend and I decided to go to DC and just lolly gag around. I just needed to see some buildings. Architecture and I had a falling out this semester and I had a love affair with graphic communication. I think it was more of a lust thing but it felt good. I just love the instant gratification that graphics can give you. My lack of interest in architecture isn’t too healthy seeing as I’m an arch major. The trip remedied my slight sickness and helped myself and architecture get reacquainted. I sketched a bit or “eye hand candy” as I like to call it. It seems that I remember these places acutely as I craft the image. Weather the sketch is good or bad I still walk away with an imprint in my head that a photo can’t give. I can still walk the Pope_Leighey house down to the last brick. It cost Pope $7,100 to build that house. FLW charged a whopping $500 for his archi fees. It makes me wonder ”oh where has affordable design gone too?” Happy New Year everyone!!
