..various Cities and Shapes . . .

Here are two magic city images.. from the Twout-a-verse..
(sometimes spelled with a W, sometimes with an R)

Older progress sketches of the same city..

Right is the first "Bimbo Wall" version that was published in the 'Worlds' book, and a larger version I'm still tweaking.

Here's the bigger version...

Build it up with clay and cut through the bristol board,

Here's the faux  "stained glass" effect added with paper..

This is a lot of trouble to go thru to get a light shinning through "window" effect, which could be done faster digitally, but what the heck.

Here it is with a flashlight shoved behind it.

I don't know why I'm wasting my time with this nonsense.  But obviously i seem to enjoy it.

Oops, i notice i didn't extend the yellow "glass" to the edges, better fix that too. I'm not sure this was really successful, building it up, adding a light,

but - hey... it was a fun experiment to try.

More assorted Nola panels..

Another Nola spread.

You know, i never noticed before, but here's that same spiral shape again, same as the Bimbo Wall has. I always seem to gravitate to certain shapes,

maybe it all goes back to Zero-girl.

Hey Sam, long time no comment from my end ( I'm the watercolor bird girl ( or at least I was)). What is it about spirals? They are a repeating theme in my stuff too.
Take care.

Spirals are a natural occurring shape in the universe. I think gravity is more than just a force, it seems all things bend to gravity's will. It's an interesting philosophy.

Hey Sam, I really dig the stained-glass window effect. If that particular piece is just an experiment and you're willing to sell it - I'd love to take it off your hands! Even your self-proclaimed 'nonesense' is still exciting to see - keep up the great work.
