Having no idea that I was meant to attend MassArt in Boston, I applied (and was accepted) to the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. For the application to the school, I had to submit a drawing of a bicycle. There were no guidelines (and, as previously stated, I'm not one to carry around a sketch book).
I imagined that the admissions folks received thousands of perfectly rendered bicycles — I wanted to give them something a bit different. My bicycle was drawn entirely with words. More specifically, it was drawn with a combination of lyrics from the song "Bicycle" by Queen (the vertical text) and my own personal reflections about how guilty I feel for loathing physical exercise (the wavy text). The bike was drawn by darkening select text.
RISD doesn't return your drawing submissions, but these (bad) photos of the project remain.
