I recently had the crazy idea to draw all of the lighthouses that currently exist in the state of Michigan. I thought there were going to be a couple dozen. Turns out, there’s more than 100. I spent several days compiling a list of all the lighthouses that are still standing, complete with their height, birth year, and nearest city.
Then I started drawing…
Eventually I hope to make a giant print of all of them, but I have a long way to go before that happens. In the meantime, I just spend a lot of time reading about lighthouses and talking about lighthouses and sometimes actually visiting lighthouses.
