City Lines Patrick Vale
Thick lines and bright colors anchor the work of this illustrator that draws cities in a confident and beautiful way. I am amazed by his work that I just discovered by accident. Hope you like them as much as I do. Word to the wise, his work is better appreciated large scale to see the level of detail achieved in each work of art.
