Bricks, windows, arches, curves, angles, roofs... you name it, if it's part of the city architecture, it's very likely Daniel Van Der Noon has drawn it.
Everything about his art inspires me. They are all hand-drawn and inked directly onto a wall, window, or canvas. No prior sketching or mapping. It's just one stroke here, another line there and soon enough buildings and rooftops appear.
In his own words, "I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text."
You'll find plenty to like in the following images, and I guarantee you'll especially enjoy the process videos after the fold.
This has been making its rounds on the web, but I just couldn't resist posting it too. It should not be missed. I've plenty talked about how much I love constraints, as they tend to be a great catalyst for ideas you might not have ever considered and this illustration project completely embraces that notion.
Thomas Lamadieu has been drawing in the space between buildings for his new series, SkyArt, and he's making us all look up again. Open spaces of blue sky replaced with drawn characters stuffed amongst the architecture. What's not to love?
