UPDATE: Hooray! New theme installed and slideshows working again.
This one is probably my favorite so far. And is number six in my new 100 Cityscapes Project. I was thinking of doing a set of mushroom cities, and maybe some moving cities (see below)! Submitted for the Illustration Friday topic, “Hybrid”.
Marla was the daughter of a lesser deity, a bratty, difficult child who flaunted her small magics by teasing local children and animals. One day she convinced a djinn to grant her wish for a small city of her own, but in the manner of djinn her wish was subverted. Her father refused to intervene even when the tiny city seemed to weigh heavily upon her. Finally, to the surprise of many, she became a kind and thoughtful steward for the city and its tiny inhabitants.
The first one is my favorite as well. I love the way in which you use the white gel pen, it adds a new dimension to the drawings!
Oh my just love Mushroom City! My favorite. I want to live there! But it might smell after a little while. hee hee. But it looks so pretty! who cares! Ode to smurfs everywhere huh! very cool. Love your vision for your other citys as well. Yes very cool idea.
LOVE your Mushroom City! What a novel idea! Can’t wait to see your 100 cityscapes….they will be fabulous.
Here’s some ideas:
City in a drop of bubble, city on a thimble, village on the back of a flying hawk, ghost town, town on a flower, town in a bottle, steampunk town, pyramid town, underwater city, city in a teacup, just letting my imagination wander…..
Lovely work, Cindy!!! The mushroom city is beautiful, but the concept of the girl with the city on her head is amazing!!!
So glad I don’t have to walk around with a city on my head! I especially like the mushroom city too.
So fun! 100 cityscapes? How awesome. Can’t wait to see them!!
This is awesome, Cindy! This might be one of my most favorites of yours!! What a super challenge..you are an inspiration!
The mushroom city is a beauty! Love the slight angle, leaf and the caption!
Cindy! city hat, airship, and shrooms, love it. All of them have a great playful and welcoming feel.
Now you have me thinking of fat and skinny mushrooms and I’ll never look at a mushroom the same way ever again. Big plusse, Cindy. It’ll be fun to see what you come up with next!
I’m loving your fun, colorful cityscapes. What a great project!
Ha ha! These are great! Love the story…..as she likely has lots & lots of little people crawling around her head, she’d better be careful if she scratches it!!!
I love your imagination! :) Wonderful cityscapes.
I like the idea of a ship city,,,good work Cinders!
