On the Road

On the Road is a work comprising two elements that bring together both traditional and contemporary drawing. They illustrate my experience of a car journey from my hometown of Aberystwyth, to my childhood home in Leicester.

The charcoal drawings form a graphic novel style narrative that consolidates and sits in harmony with the series of seismographs; one depicts the visual, the other a physical recording of motion.

The seismographic drawings were inspired by the subway drawings of William Anastasi.

They are made by holding a pencil in each hand, held against a piece of paper, supported by a board on my lap.

 

The motion of the car is inscribed onto the paper.
