Project Description

park road

story:

In fall 2020, my son started drawing on the whiteboard in my studio while I was meditating. I closed my eyes to a blank whiteboard, then opened them 20 minutes later to see this elaborate masterpiece. It looks like a cool abstract piece, but when I asked what it was, he said it was a park. The orange line around the outside was a road, the white bars parking lines, black asphalt, blue is a pond, and the circle portion was so that cars could drive around “so the kids would get excited.” I was so impressed by the whole thing I told him we had to recreate it for real.

Swipe to see the original whiteboard version. Because of the color/edge detail, I had to assist more than usual with this one with the fine lines and cleanup.
