I love living in the city, but on the other hand I’m glad I don’t live in THE the City. That is to say: I have a love/hate relationship with the gritty, eroding city cityscape. Part of the love part of that is, I love drawings and prints of urban spaces, especially when they’re done sloppily in ink (clean crisp geometry of buildings has a place in my heart too but it doesn’t remind me of the reality of city life). Giant creatures optional.

Some of my favorite chroniclers of offkilter urbanity follow: if you have any suggestions of folks I should check out, note em in the comments.

pietari posti [I am amazed we don’t have one of her prints yet; I can only surmise it’s because we can’t decide which]
pposti12

kozyndan [they do really great very wide format urban panoramas, usually involving hundreds of bunnies, giant color amoebas, or some sort of strange mutants]
kozyndan

josh cochran [his work, like pposti or james jean or not too many others I can think of, is perfection to me]
cochran

paul pope [Does cities very well. Also, people doing weird sigils whilst sitting on the surface of mars.]
paulpope

brian wood [loves urban blight more than most anyone]
wood

Now back to your regularly scheduled loveliness.

  • Evan Hecox is one of my favorite artists. He handles urbanscapes in a way you might really like. His screenprints are fairly affordable. I have quite a few. See his work at arkitip.com. He recently came out with a book Urban Abstract which further impresses me.

    Thanks Noah. You’re absolutely right; totally up my alley. This is how cities are.
    I may have to do a followup post.
