United States of America, 1947 – 2004
Carter Todd left school at an early age and spent many years doing odd jobs, including running a popcorn stand at the Indianapolis Speedway and working as a gas station attendant and a short-order cook. As an adult, he suffered from epilepsy. It was during a stay in a center for addiction treatment that Todd began to draw. His subject matter was narrowly focused on architectural structures and referred to buildings he either knew firsthand or saw on television. His drawing style featured a multiplicity of perspectives and precise detail in its architectural components.
