Alley Drawings

Drawings of Chicago Alleys, using Rapidograph and PITT pens on Arches 300 pound hot-pressed paper.

Alley Studies

Chicago is famous for its large grid of streets. It’s a sort of framework on which the city is built. Based on the United States Public Land Survey, there are eight blocks to a mile with a major thoroughfare every four. These blocks are either laid out in full (long blocks) or halved (short blocks). These drawings were done digitally in Sketchbook Pro with a Wacom Intuos tablet.
