As opposed to last week’s bit of imaginary and slightly abstract imagery of a hooman, this week I did a detailed, almost architectural, drawing of some buildings.

Actually, it wasn’t just this week. I started working on this last December, and did it in fits and starts when my MG-afflicted fingers would allow.  Based on a couple of blurry photos taken in Chicago on an overcast day last December, through a dirty window, no less, this began life as a pencil sketch.  But I wasn’t really happy with my loose rendering, so I put the original sketch on a lightbox and re-inked it in cheap marker pens (back in stock at Five Below), using straight-edges along the way to make up for my original unsteadiness.

After scanning the marker drawing, I cropped out some sloppiness, and erased a smudge near the middle that was driving me nuts. The end result is a drawing of buildings. So there you go.
