This week, I digitized some work from a pencil sketching phase I went through from 1992-1995 (late high school to early college). These were all drawn mostly from memory, with occasional references to photos to get details right. These were done with a mechanical pencil, and small sections of the lead for shading.

It's interesting the things you can do with all the time you have when you're young. I haven't done anything like this since. Like some of my other interests at a younger age, I don't think I'll ever have the time or motivation to get back into it.

Railroad tracks at South Wade and East Maiden in Washington, PA, about a mile from my parent's house:
