In the interest of offering a wider range of imaginary map products, I recently made a small selection of my images available through Society6. You can purchase them as art prints but also as cell phone cases and pillowcases—and, for the first time ever, a T-shirt! PLUS, through July 14th you can get free shipping by clicking this link: http://society6.com/emilygarfield?promo=b36379
Lately I’ve been branching out and trying to explore something that interests me at the core of my map-drawing project, which is the element of automatic drawing. As much as the drawings reflect possible cityscapes, they also reflect my interior process of responding to the materials on a subconscious level. I’ve been pulling out this automatic drawing process with a sort of fractal approach involving layers of paint and pen marks, and have created a new “Abstract Drawing” category on this site for these projects.
