Pasadena City Hall Painting


Here is my painting of Pasadena City Hall.

 Been doing a lot of work for Cloudy 2 (which I love BTW), but it is refreshing to take a personal work to completion. Lately its been tough to call a work done, due to the fact that by the end of each working day I learn so much from being around such amazing artists, I find myself endlessly tweaking my work. 

It's been wonderful working with Justin Thompson, Production Designer for both Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Cloudy 2 . He is in no small part responsible for broadening my perspective on how I look at composing pictures for film and illustration as a whole. 

This print will be available at my Etsy store soon.
