Finally, an authentic, drawn-on-site urban sketch, fresh from the sketchbook. Size: about 10" x 6". It was a bright, unseasonably warm day in Tysonia, and I drew this vista while I was waiting for my car to be inspected at Honda of Tysons Corner, down the block. Here is the bright and cheerful home of "Mr. Tire," and his welcoming garage bays. What if cars had consciousness? I sometimes imagine a universe where all objects, not just humans and animals, were sentient. In such a universe, how would we negotiate the rights of things we used, or consumed? Or would we be a more brutal and practical bunch, and just use things without their consent, with no empathy for their joy, pain or feelings. I'll stop now.
