Hit me with your best shots


Last week I had a fun little competition on Twitter @geehowquaint asking people to submit photos of their favourite buildings/avenues/streets from their city or travels farther afield.  The response was terrific and made my decision-making difficult.  The first one to roll in was the building featured at the top of this post.  The person that supplied this suggestion said that his a much overlooked fella.  It stands tall and proud, but people don’t really notice it any more due to the noisy motorway just behind it.  So I thought I would show this grand thing some love and draw it in my bright, vibrant fashion.

I decided to representing a variety of spaces and places was where I wanted to go with this.  As you can see I hopped from an allotment shed to a gorgeous street in Edinburgh to the brightly lit up Shore at night.

Thank you everyone who joined in the fun.  It was so great to see the responses roll in.  If you would like to commission an artwork of your favourite building/street/neighbourhood/huge expansive city view, please get in touch. These drawings start at £65.  Hop over to my etsy shop to order.


I am an artist living and working in a rather gorgeous city. My art can be purchased in various shops throughout the city as well as from my online shop. Most of my work is for commission, private and corporate. I am the founder of Crash Course in Art History Limited.
