I wanted to create a poster of a place I've traveled to (which isn't the case with San Diego), so I chose Copenhagen, Denmark. I loved the architecture of the city and the bright colors of all the buildings ??especially the oranges and reds. This illustration was inspired by one of the many photos I took of no landmarks in particular, just the outside of a building that I felt well represented the look and feel of the city.
Update: I decided to begin to create a Copenhagen series, using different color schemes. The second poster is a blue/green themed poster of the Little Mermaid.
