"The map began as just a doodle."

In the summer of 1963 Jerry Gretzinger began drawing a map of an imaginary city. You can now use Jerry's Map to zoom in on any of the over 3,200 eight by ten inch panels of the original paper map, executed in acrylic, marker, colored pencil, ink, collage, and inkjet print. This short film by Greg Whitmore takes a fascinating look at the project and the artist's process, which "is dictated by the interplay between an elaborate set of rules and randomly generated instructions."

Not your grammar school doodle

Oh what you can do with a colored pencil. Colored pencils are not just for grammar school projects. Some of these drawings are pretty realistic. Others are just pretty. Who knew there is an organization devoted to colored pencil work?
