draw a sign challenge

last weekend was a very busy weekend -- so busy, i haven't even gotten all of our activities that we did posted to my blog. but one of the things i've wanted to do for a long time was to go over and see my friend's house she had built and take a picture of a junction near her house where F hwy and U hwy meet. something about that just struck me as funny!

after a morning of soccor, lunch out, finding friend's new house, visiting, and more -- we headed off for this somewhat famous junction near her home for my picture. for the curious, this junction is located near la russell, missouri.



the EDM group challenge lately was to "draw a sign" -- so here it is. my version of the junction of F and U highways. hope you have a laugh out of it, too.

this drawing was done in a 9 x 12 sketchbook w/ 70# white paper and a black prang colored pencil, sprayed w/ matte finish sealant to keep it from smearing.

Blech!!! Get a room, you two!

Anyways, good pic and good drawing! It cracks me up that these highways would be allowed to intersect!

I really liked how as an artist you faded out the insignificant.. (the tree) but left one just aware enough of it.. to give the piece more body...

REALLY nice piece...
