Micro Cityscapes in Pen & Ink

2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, gel pen

I like this one because I remembered to add the little streetlamp, and potted plants, and a tree, and of course the garbage can. Which may not be a garbage can at all. Perhaps it’s a portal connecting all the garbage cans in all the micro cities.

With that in mind, I shall submit this post for the Illustration Friday topic “Hidden”, for the hidden garbage can portals. Which I didn’t even know about until I wrote this post!

Bottled City

See, there’s another one! These are cities number 19 and 20, of my 100 Cityscapes Project. One or both may end up in my shop.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Love eyeline, you even have the depth of the pavement. You amaze me with all the little details you put in, the streetlamp etc and all drawn ACEO size. Bottled city reminds me of that conundrum about how the ship got into the botte. Thanks for your tip about the nose drawing video, I shall take a look.

    I am so excited at the idea that the garbage cans are really portals into your other cityscapes! Now, when I work my way into one of them, I’ll have access to some of my other favorites, too!

    Love all your iterations of golden brown in the Eyeline, by the way!

    So that’s what my eye makeup looks like under a microscope at the end of a long day. No wonder my eyelids feel so heavy. The eye city is so clever! I love it.

    I likeboth of these, Cindy. The idea of sending an image of my city out to others across the water, is really cool; or preserving it to time travel even better.
    The “Eyeline” one makes me think of the designs they ndo on fingernails these days. What if women had their city painted on their eyelid. Oooooo, what next? Huh? Very creative! I have commented about how I like your eye creations before.
