Maps are an interesting motif of a journey,however I think they add too much business in a lot of pieces,and so detail has to be cut out of the subject,such as tone and shadowing in this piece shown. It represents a physical journey throughout a place, and provides a detailed canvas,however I do not think I would carry this idea forward to a final piece.

Through drawing on train tickes I wanted to connect the offical documention with the regular people I see on my commute to college.

moving drawing so that each ticket with a different drawing can be videos so that its a short film of someones "journey".
