Busy Artsy City

I need to make a fun illustration about how Kansas City is a town of arts and big ideas. Should I focus on the visual arts? performing arts? First Fridays? architecture? the loved/loathed shuttlecocks and sky stations?  Yes.  

So this one is a bit busy, but I like to think its fun and vibrant too.  That's what I tell myself anyways.

KC - Town of arts and big ideas

Here is another rough sketch for the KC project. Deciding the best way to illustrate how KC is a town of arts and big ideas was a bit of a challenge. In this sketch I wanted to try out a bustling First Friday feel with the Kauffman Center for the Performing arts in the background.  I always want to call it the Kauffman Performing Arts Center.  Seems like better economy of words. Haha me talking about economy of words! 

Anyways I'm excited.  I think I'm caught up enough on projects to get some make up sleep tonight.  Hmm, I'm realizing that my make up sleep is still less than most peoples normal sleep. But I'll take it!
