Week 3 Reference Sketches + Reading Response

Reference Sketches:


Yuko Shimizu took a tool we probably all use everyday and brought its use to the next level. She was tasked with finding a place in New York City that screamed NYC for a drawing and she was able to do that without even stepping outside. Yuko first looked up still images but she wasn’t able to find exactly what she needed, meanwhile by using Google Maps, she was able to virtually walk up and down the avenues of the location she chose and get closeups on details of the buildings, all without having to be on location for hours in terrible weather.
