Cultural Maps and Drawing from Life

Lately I've been thinking about creating a series of drawings on the history of a place and its cultural waves through time, much like Rebecca Solnit's Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas, or Judith Schalansky's Atlas of Remote Islands. In these works, the illustrations, typefaces, stories and research are seamless and create worlds that I can get lost in all day. Another inspiration, Jennifer New's Drawing from Life: The Journal as Art, makes me feel better about doodling in my journals.
