Meet the correspondents: NORFOLK, Va. > Walt Taylor

"When I was a kid, drawing was a way to get noticed by the popular kids and to avoid getting beaten up by bullies. Nothing much has changed since then. As far as urban sketching goes, I’m fascinated by the way luxury and squalor, beauty and ugliness, hedge fund managers and junkies, exist side by side in established cities, whose various constituencies have learned to accommodate each other over the generations. Newer communities try to exert too much control, and therefore are much less interesting to observe and draw."
