Out of Boredom

Thomas likes to draw maps when he is bored. The maps aren't of any specific place or location, but rather they are executed in a very automatic way through imagining the city developing over time. Thomas writes, "When I am drawing the map evolves. This is when I am telling a story with it. For instance this village is started as a small group of farm houses next to the river. After several imaginative ages, it becomes a village with all its surrounding infrastructure. The blocks are houses or buildings. The white space is either free or road. This map is just one of thousands I have made over the years. Mostly they land in the garbage, but sometimes I keep one for no special reason."
