Data Driven Drawing

The City vs. The County

This set of drawings reflect the 2015 homicide rate by race.  The image on the left is Baltimore City and the image on the right reflects the county.  

Each wedge represents a month in a year. Reading it like an analog clock the year starts at 1 o'clock angle. The month wedge's first day  of each month starts in the center of the circle.  If there is more than one victim from the same race in a day.  A space (or white line) is made in the day section. 

Is it in the weather or maybe it's the moon...

This homicide drawing looks at the weather and moon phases in 2016. The white dashes represent a victim that day.
