City Prints 2015

As of today, I’ve got three of these now. My ultimate goal is to create one for every major city I’ve been to (or have connected with in some sort of way); however, that is a lot of cities, so this may be an ongoing, years in the making type series. One at a time…one at a time.   Also, I’m always adding things to the shop, so check it out http://society6.com/sketchbookjack #metropolis #illustrationFriday

Happy Birthday Charlie Dickens

Happy 200th Birthday Charlie Dickens!  He is probably my favorite “classic” author.  The imagery and moods he builds are so robust, not to mention the themes and brilliant characters he designed are right up my alley.  London, smokestacks, chimneys, murders, dry humor, smart humor, dark humor, despair, hope, fear, shadows, chases, rooftops, thievery, spying, seedy underworlds, gangs, wars, and ghosts, all in tailed coats and top hats; what’s not to love?
