base of the enterprise

davis enterprise building

This is the Davis Enterprise building on G Street. The Enterprise is our local newspaper. I heard a dicky bird say that this building was going to be knocked down; whether that’s the case or not, I figured it was time to sketch it. I took myself down there on my lunchtime a couple of days ago and started scratching away with a pen which was trying to tell me, “I don’t like this paper!” but I was like, “you’ll like it and do as you’re told,” but the pen knew best. It knew that after the fairly simple buildings to the left and middle, I’d have to somehow tackle the one on the right, which I have avoided for years because of the horrible repeated concrete pattern of those blocks. Maybe I should draw a close up. This sketch says enough though.
