This was a quick sketch, trying to ignore small details, and staying focused on areas of color. Not as easy as it sounds. I did a few other versions, some before, and some after. Some in ink and some in ArtRage on the iPad.
Another view of the edge of Alamo Square Park. I've just discovered that the park is going to be closed for improvements for 9 months (and these things always go long). Could make this whole series more valuable in the interim. Ahem.
The neon sign was so cool that they kept it even after the taco place changed to an asian fusion place. They still have one taco on the menu out of respect. I really loved the way it flooded the building with red hot light.
