New Seasons Job Fair in Southwest Portland (07-07-11)

I went to the New Seasons Job Fair on Allen Blvd. in Beaverton and spent a few hours working on the following panorama of the people waiting to get called in for their chance at getting a job at the new Progress Ridge store that will open next month.

The book I used was a small Moleskine accordion fold book, and the scene reflects a 360 degrees view of what was going on around me. This was a fun project, but not an easy task, since I had to carefully compare the proportions of the people in relationship to each other... The last panels are sketches of people's faces, and I tied everything together with a self-portrait holding the book and drawing.

  4. Oh my! Maxine, your drawing is so fabulous! I found your blog quite by accident and am so glad I did. I have bookmarked it to enjoy reading and viewing all the past posts. I can just imagine a panorama like this across a giant round room in a museum. It would be so wonderful! My opinion, just keep doing art, and write occasionally if you must (grin).
