Illustration Friday: URBAN

For urban, I wanted to convey the feeling of astonishment and delight when you first step up into a busy city from a subway or bus and find yourself in the middle of vibrant activity. Years ago, my dad and I took a bus to New York City to go see the David Letterman show live. I remember the excitement of so many things going on at once, and the "gestalt" (did I use this word correctly?) of taking it all in in one moment.


  1. You are so good at capturing the wonder or excitement of a moment! Love how they are set apart in vibrant color.

    1. Thanks Mit :D
      I am calling this phase in my illustrations the WOOOW! phase - my characters all seem to be going HAAAAH (open mouthed)! It was one of the best moments I could think of when coming up with an idea for urban.


I love reading your feedback, thanks so much for commenting!
