a little project from the road

I don't know what other people do relax and unwind while traveling but I enjoy making little cites out of all those little hotel soap boxes. The view outside my hotel room in downtown Houston made the perfect backdrop for my city :)

I can't believe you found the time (and energy) to make art after teaching all day! Loved your class. I blogged about it, too.

OMG Alisa, you are a wonderfully creative crazy person -- and I mean that in the nicest way! Who thinks of painting their soap boxes?! I love it! (Of course, this is coming from a person who stays up into the wee hours making plushies and earrings and zines and . . . )

Those are completely awesome. I think I love them especially because they remind me of cityscapes from old 60s/70s elementary reading texts and other children's books of the time. I used to love the two- or three-color illustrations of tall city buildings in those books--such a classic illustration style, and so evocative for a kid who lived in just such a building. And they're even better in 3D! I particularly love the shot of the little buildings all lit up by the night time lights of the real city. Beautiful.
