This series depicts the various construction projects seen in the SoMa district in San Francisco. Thanks to the tech boom, the city itself has been under rapid development in recent years, symbolized by the soaring skyscrapers and housing prices. SoMa is where all the tech start-ups cluster and seems to be in constant need for more room to accommodate the gold rushers.

These drawings are done with charcoal sticks – the smudginess of this medium conveys the right feel of “under development”, fitting the theme perfectly.
