I really like this concept. It feels like I'm lying in the middle of a street looking up at the expressive stars.

How the devil??? I just received the assignment for IF. Wonderful rendering. I shyed away from trying because I thought they would all look like Manhattan. The white on black is so striking. The composition is delicious. I'm always happy after I visit your blog Gennine!

Great idea - you're using the paper all around like children do at first. You have so many lovely details in your drawing! And it's really beautiful with the black and white.

I wish I could make an image like this!

I love the contrast of the white on the black, and I love the way the buildings go around the border. I could see this as a decorative tile...it's great!

Oh wow, this is brilliant! I wish I had the patience for this style, but I haven't. It could be a carpet! I really like the white on black instead of vice versa.

Geninne, if I were prone to talk in baseball lingo, I would say this was a home run. Wow.

This drawing is so crisp and clean, and so much fun to study!

i love this! there's something about the black and white combining with the circular motion of the piece that makes it just riviting.

the message of "one community" is also in there somewhere--which in my mind couldn't be more important for this shaky world these days.

thank you!

You can tell people like this one! :) Very nice - I like it a lot. So simple with only black and white, yet so expressive and I just love looking at it. Would've been nice over my bed. Great idea too. :)

Wow, Geninne. Your illustration is a hum dinger this time. Maybe that's not the right word to describe how eye catching it is. I always look forward to seeing what you come up with each week. Thanks for the nice comment too.
