This is my picture for Illustration Friday the theme is skyline. I wasn’t much inspired by today’s theme and I spent way too much time struggling with my illustration. "Skyline" was created on a piece of multi-purpose copy paper by tracing a real picture of Stumptown with my Faber-Castle 3-H pencil, then I inked over that with my Gel-Roller, then I scanned my tracing and started messing with it in Photoshop. I couldn't quite get it to look the way I wanted, but here it is anyway.
I love my city’s skyline although every time I look at it I start wondering why humans try to separate themselves so far from nature. Oh the folly of man.
Or as Aldous Huxley said, "Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough."
Or as Ice Cube said, "So come on and chickity-check yo self before you wreck yo self."
Have you chickity-checked yo self lately? Have you left anyone some love lately?
