Detroit, the city where I’m from, has been known for its decline since the late sixties. Recently, the city has been experiencing a second renaissance. As an adult, rediscovering the city, I cannot help but imagine these abandoned masterpieces, crumbling in on themselves, restored to their former beauty. It was in these moments that the idea of capturing the buildings in their current state and surrounding them with life came to fruition. This idea is achieved through detailed freehand micron ink architectural drawings combined with whimsical soft pastel natural elements.
