This is an old drawing I did of the Pasadena City Hall. A friend/classmate of mine recently mentioned stippling, and it took me a while to remember what stippling is. An invention of high school art teachers to keep their students very focused and very very busy. I kept stippling for several years past high school, but gradually gave it up. I think there are machines to do that sort of thing for us.
My favorite thing about this picture is the improbable little plant on the right, which looks like a false aralia that used to stay in my room. My favorite things about the city hall are how much larger it is than you would expect, and the fact that it is labeled city hall.
