As a nation dependent on the automobile, America has come to espouse the billboard as part of its natural landscape. Some find this unfortunate while others see billboards as a necessary appendage of our consumer-based culture. I find billboards immensely fascinating. Even more so when the advertisements on their faces become abstracted through natural and manmade forces.

This is a series of drawings created with the intent to elevate as well as subvert the imagery we are all made witnesses to in the simple act of going from place to place.
