Urban Illustrations – the Cities Seeing by the Creative Eyes

Our today showcase may probably be called one of the brightest and the most colorful galleries ever on this site. It is dedicated to urban illustrationsuncommon, ravishing, magic, and unique. The human kind tends to globalization and urbanization these days. We have no slightest doubt that it is very cozy, pleasant, and peaceful to live in the country where one can unite with nature and stay on alone with his thoughts; still, the busy life, the most vigorous activity, and all the progress of this world definitely take place in the big cities. Yes, they are crowded and noisy, often messy and always in a rush, but they are literary the places where the future begins…

The images collected in this gallery reflect the ways modern creative illustrators view and perceive the contemporary life in the cities, or how they imagine the future of those. Sometimes these illustrations seem to be grotesque and funny, sometimes – too sad and frustrating, but this is what our life on this planet is made of – happiness and sorrow. One of the most vivid features of the majority of these images is the presence of multiple buildings practically stuck together with the windows starring at us like the eyes of some creatures. What do you feel watching these illustrations? Does it seem like a tiny person is going to get lost in all those crammed with concrete and glass cities? Well, in fact, they make the perfect environment for the modern human being to survive in.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
