yes my friends, many shantytowns were destroyed during the making of this image! I had the help of many photographs of these shanytowns(a city district inhabited by people living in huts and shanties) to give it an extremely chaotic and cluttered feel.
I also wanted it to appear lifeless and barren, with the exception of some birds in the air and maybe a little dude here or there(see if you can spot them!).
All done in photoshop, about a days work. Thanks for lookin'!

The immense amount of detail is crazy. This is sometimes how I feel living in San Francisco. Everyone is living right on top of one another and you can barely move without stepping on someone else. Really amazing piece.

hello there, my name is justin and i am currently working on developing a card/board game that may or may not be a commercial product. In either case, I just wanted to ask permission to use some of your works in exchange for art publicity. Your name would be included on said card or board and if you wish, I can even include the website address to your work. I wish to help promote artists as well design this game I have been conceptualizing over several years. Would you be interested?

Curiously, the very fact that this city looks so dead is precisely what gives it so much life. It's incredible - I love it.
