Drive By


This is the start of my new memory sketches I call "Drive By". I am stuck in L.A traffic for an hour each morning. So I have turned my L.A traffic frustration in to drawing joy. I listen to Howard Stern and watch people drive by.

LoL! That's great!

I've noticed on my daily commute on the 405..that whenever I look over at people driving, that 4 out of 10 times they are picking their noses.

I thought about mounting a camera in my car and documenting the phenomenon, and then publishing them in a coffee table book, called "California Gold Diggers."

...but I dunno what the legalities are of that would be. lol

Anyways.. I really enjoy your blog Stephen!! It's a part of my daily routine!!

Ceps.

It is all about seeing,observing and remembering. Practice this enough times and it will become second nature to you.

so when you look at the person, you determine what kind of character they are and kind of turn them into basic shape? i'm trying to set my mind so i can remember :)(hard for me to remember) i thinkin to set it like this :
- what kind of character or emotion :bored, sad, mad, etc
- what kind of shape : big head, small, long, etc
then i'm stuck :D
oh.. i hope i don't ask to much .. just trying to learn :D

by the way,
i remember my friend once had an idea to take picture of people behind the wheel.. coz it's pretty interesting to see.. but too bad we're afraid that the people will get mad ..:P

I have thought of doing a photo series of people in their cars. Some folks seem like they are in their own little bubble of privacy....even though they are surrounded by windows. ?!?!?!? I have witnessed some crazy goings ons.

Ceps,

I only get quick looks, but it is the first impression you get that you need to capture. Ask yourself, What sticks out the most? fat,thin?,hair,no hair?big nose?, small nose? ect..
