On this particular stretch of Roosevelt Way Northeast near 90th, the complicated network of utility lines and bifurcated trees is made further messy by a huge, ugly cell tower. I started the sketch focused on the two trees and how the power lines intersected with them. Before I knew what was happening, though, I found myself sucked in by all the stuff sticking out from that cell tower. Trying to track all those wires and transformers is strangely fascinating, even in their extreme ugliness.
