This week's theme for Illustration Friday is "Metropolitan".
Definition: Of, relating to, or characteristic of a major city
I perhaps made a bit of a stretch with my take on the metropolitan theme this week. I wanted to "zoom in" a bit down to the more intimate level of the big city - so I did images from a sidewalk cafe. This is a favorite setting for dessert and coffee with friends after a hard day of shopping in the city. I also went digital this week using Painter to get the desired, more loose look and the cut-out layered effect of the picture elements. (click here to see larger image). Although I was initially quite stumped as to how to proceed with this week's theme, I really enjoyed the process once I settled on my idea.
