“Observations, errors, + corrections” is a series of drawings I began in 2009 based on observations of the environments or situations I find myself in. The text is in Spanish and English and is written directly in the drawing as I work. As I continue drawing, I cover sections of text with graphite or colored pencil because I decide they are irrelevant, nor succinct enough, or too personal. The covered areas create randomly formed shapes based on the editing process.
