Streets Of Fire



When drawing I sometimes like to have themes. I'll draw several hot dog carts or several Chinese restaurants. I do a kind of series. Artists are famous for that crap. Draw one thing but just keep doing it over and over. So I drew a couple of firehouses. I did them in a very long format. Big, to make them impressive. So here is my series of dos.

I am trying to get people to think out of the box. try to do things a bit different. I just invented the long format for blogging.
