I go to cafes and sit for hours drawing this and that. I like taking things apart visually and reconstructing them into patterns or motifs. I also notice the patterns on people’s clothing and draw sections of them.

They say that empty chairs are stand-ins for people; representative of the human presence, etc. In flipping through my sketch books (I have two going right now) I found a lot of chair drawings. Chairs are always available in cafes, after all. Still, I like those little tidbits of symbolism.
