This was an exhausting sketch of the Crescent Hill Library and am finished. I am no longer Final Librarydebating whether to imply the steps and lettering on the front of the building.

Of course it needs color, but I can’t use any until I have a clean scan for a few printed pieces. I like my lines, but am concerned that overdoing it is right around the corner. To stop or not.

    OK, seriously? This rocks. PLEASE don’t say you did those lines freehand. But I’ll be you did. There’s a confidence of purpose in this that I’m envious of, like the knowledge that your drawing it matters. Here’s another cool thing: the two halves — if the building’s bisected vertically — aren’t mirror images. With that choice you gave it character. The drawing is alive with choices, like a library is (or should be). And the coolest thing of all? Those swoop-y curves? When I first looked at the drawing they made me think immediately of pages turning in books.
