Description

It’s a cartoony building portrait of 3801 St Denis St, Montreal. Chosen as a pretty but random corner of the city.

I first roughed out a possible larger layout, then selected out this central part and printed those to ink. the distortion on the building was done using google earth as a virtual plein air tool. I did sketches of the building compositing multiple points of view to bend the space of the structure and give it a gestural lean reminiscent of Fleischer era cartoon dancing buildings.
