Illustrating a cityscape

I’m working on the illustrations for a new book (more details soon! It hasn’t been officially announced yet…), and really enjoying this one of a character (and her cat) living in a high rise building. I loved imagining the view out the window, and drawing the skyscrapers and a little rooftop garden! I enjoy urban sketching, which is done on location, and got started with it in Chicago– though this illustration is not of specific buildings, I definitely think that it was influenced by the time I spent urban sketching in Chicago!
