I’m looking; I’m looking really hard; trying to figure out…how do you do what you do?! The way you draw those buildings/and, windows; each one looks simliar, and, yet still is ‘unique’. I also notice that you draw characters extremely sharp, too. I noticed the use of a very limited colour palette, thin black lines/thick black wash/on white paper/small touches of blue. The composition is interesting, as well. Love the apparent simplicity of that tall dominant lampost placed straight in the middle; with the guy standing below; the lamp/the diagonal street/the wash at the back…everything seems to point towards him…including the tallest building. I wonder if all this composition stuff is something you actually think about; or, you just do unconsciously, instead. The composition looks to be really ‘tight’ to me; which, I think, is one of the hallmarks of the true master. ;-)
Another guy who’s work I loved who could draw large crowds/streets/etc. was an artist called, Felix Topolski. He has a gallery near Waterloo Station in London which I often go to visit. He also has a web site online… http://felikstopolski.com/…you might like his work; then, again, you might not; I really don’t know. Sometimes, people have shown me work of their fav. artist…which I thought was very unappealing to me…at the end of the day, we all are entitled to having our own taste.
