Illustration Friday -- Jungle


Skyscraper: A Haiku

Our concrete mountains
scaled by pressing a button.
Crowded peak, then sky.

This week's drawing for Illustration Friday's theme "Jungle" was inspired by Cathie's current submission to One Deep Breath.

What a fabulous idea, and rendition. Sometimes it takes a marriage....a marriage of nature and material too. I hear New York is "like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder, how I keep from going under...huh, huh, ha ha..."

Can you hear that toon...I have been singing it all week.

Oh that is so lovely and perfect with Cates Haiku. How wonderful that you two collaborated on an art piece. Oh, that just warms my heart.
Fab colors in this.

All those lush trees atop a crowded sea of buildings, all the tall buildings in beautiful colors, what a cool idea. though it is a concrete jungle and I love how you have portrayed it. The haiku is perfect with your piece. Excellent!

One of your skyscrapers looks like a kazoo!

I wish the concrete jungle I live in looked as pretty as this!

Tokyo factoid for the day:
Shinjuku ward requires all new skyscrapers to include area for a rooftop garden in an effort to cut down on the severe heat island effect we have here.
