SCRAPS | FADING PEDESTRIANS

This is a sketch for the drawing below. I’m trying out my new box of Prismacolor Premier Cool Grey markers. From a distance some of my scooter and pedestrian drawings just look like fields of little blips. Though I’ve nothing against little-blip fields, I thought I’d up the neat-grid-minimalist-versus-sloppy-sketch ante by giving them an Op Art look.

The outer ring of 364 Fading Pedestrians, which I drew with Sakura Pigma pens. Love those nibs.

The inner section of 364 Fading Pedestrians, probably around 50% Cool Grey with the Prismacolors.

A broader detail from 364 Fading Pedestrians, showing the fade from black to 90%, 80%, etc etc down to 10% Prismacolor Cool Grey. My brother says it looks like I spilled a glass of water on my drawing.

And at last, 364 Fading Pedestrians, leaned against a car in front of the house, before I erased the penciled grids I used to plan the work.
