Plein Air Drawing | Construction Documentation Series
Graphic Design | Survey | Telegraph Avenue Road Redesign Documentation Illustration Project
The goal of this project is to map a 1/4 mile section of the recently repaved and redesigned Telegraph Avenue. I am about 1/3 done with this project.
My field notes are taken on index cards. I tend to draw the scene, then measure the feet, using my feet, and walking toe-to-toe. My 12″ shoes are “perfect” as one might say.
I am able to count off feet by just taking steps. My notes are either in feet and fractions there of, or in feet and inchese – I can use the 4″x6″ index card as a sight-measurement.
Once I take these notes home, comes the tedious work of deciphering my notes and turning this information into a clean vector art map.
