Side of Kapp's Pizza

Side of Kapp's Pizza, originally uploaded by camille94019.

I did this drawing yesterday in Muttonham. I used red super-fine sharpie on laminator scraps (is it acetate? I don't know). I am finding out that sharpie isn't entirely permanent on this medium (its slowly disappearing). I have walked by this building for years, but until I sat down to render its every little detail (on the corner), I really didn't appreciate how charming it is. Mutton was probably a raw little orchard town when it was built a hundred years ago.

oooh, the cornice is exceptional.

xerox? Is it a xerox? or do you want a xerox?

It is a scan of an original drawing I did.

for preservation purposes! then it won't be lost forever, or become a ruin, though ruins are worshipped as well so i don't know.

I have got it digitized, so it will last as long as our digital empire

um, who is an idiot? oh, that'd be me. sat here staring at the digitised version like it ain't no thing, when it is.

Camille said...

gives one pause, doesn't it? Does a digital file have a positive existence like a real envelope? It doesn't weigh anything. Who knows where it actually sits (probably in many places). Does it sit (or lay), what does a collection of 1s and 0s really do? Or is it simply a simulacrum or a shadow?
