I like artworks that don't gloss over the roughness or realities of life. I believe art is able to show this side of life in a more digestible, appreciative way.

This is marvelous! The colors really compliment the mood, and I love the effect of the water on the street. It seems like it has just enough going on. The graffiti is very clever, too! I adore all of your art, and you have a special talent for portraying a particular mood. Your style for people is also really fun. I really aspire to be a lot like you.

I must say, this lovely picture has convinced me that we don't have enough octopus murals where I live. :D

Grass is always greener! Love how you captured the grimness of inner-city dwellings. The incorporation of graffiti is clever and really brings the entire piece together.

I love these environment shots by the way!
Any particular reason you're starting to do them? I've always known you to do people...

i think it's a recent influx of free time! i have more time and space to come up with more detailed concepts for drawing, as opposed to the usual squeezing-it-in-between-projects approach.

Perfect! I hope the free time continues if this is what you do with it! :)
