This is a building in Old Town – a neighborhood in Lansing, Michigan. Pen and marker in a Moleskine Cahier. More sketches here: http://lifeillustrated.tumblr.com/

this is what I see in the backyard while drinking coffee. The upper portion is something like a bridge, I guess?
Just a really quick sketch of a building along the waterfront, cleaned up a little digitally.
#26 / Building
21x13cm, ink on paper, May, 2009
Downtown Chicago. Drawn from life while sitting at the foot of the Wrigley Building, looking south across the Chicago River. Mather Tower is building in the center.
One note: I left the building on the far left to finish later, hoping to use photo reference; instead, I got impatient and just doodled it in without any reference at all, which explains the discrepancy for all you familiar with the real-life scene.
