In the City

I love the hustle and bustle of the city; the fact that your bakery, restaurant, grocer, and convenience store lie just around the corner. I'm particularly fond of my own city - Seattle, but other favorites include New York City, San Francisco, Amsterdam, and London. I am drawn to these whimsical, cartoon cityscapes by matteart. The busy bustle of Damrak Street in Amsterdam, and the chaotic jungle that is New York City. Would be a fun print to hang in a child's room or in a guest bathroom. His work seems the kind that renders more unseen details the longer you stare at it. images/etsy via ffffound

I love city life too. I wish I was living in the city and not just out in the suburbs.

My heart lies in London and Paris.

Love the artwork and city life as well, either Miami where I live now or my home city, Havana, old and beautiful.

Those are so great. Love the colors! I like the city but could never live there, that's why I live close enough that San Fran is only a BART trip away!
