Andrew Armstrong's Illustrated Cityscape

Medium: ink and sharpie marker
 

I drew this for about 3 months to represent what I think of when I think of Phoenix. An oversized burning Phoenix Suns logo is the piece's sports connection and focal point. The sunrays in the distant horizon shine on Camelback mountain. The lightrail splits through Downtown, Chase Field, the Coliseum, and Tovrea Castle.

 


The countdown to Best of Phoenix begins! Last year, we profiled 100 Creatives who made a mark on the local arts scene. This year, we'll have 100 creative representations of Phoenix.
No scope or requirement on medium or size -- we'll include photography,
painting, sculpture, video, installation, literary, and more. What do
you see when you Imagine PHX?

Imagine PHX, so far:

100: Steven Revering's Westward Ho

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
