Definitely a awesome drawing. I wish I could do stuff like this. The detail and action keeps the eyes wandering and it is consistent throughout.

What words on the store window is the tree obscuring?

Thanks everybody. This drawing I worked on in spurts over a span of about two months. I'm glad you liked the shading lib - that's usually my worst area. And the missing words on the window weren't anything; I was gonna write "snow" going down but thought it was a little too "clever-in-a-cute-way." The order of the words in view, under a big sign that says "Goods," go a long way in fueling the overall meaning of the work, I think.

Did you intentionally put up 'Goods' to be followed by 4 items we generally refer to as addictive? (drugs, coffee, candy, soda). I also sense a desire to express 'something to come soon.' The address '321' appears like a countdown, and the musicians note appear to be flying towards 'nowehere.'

It looks simply and clean, but if I did not know better, I'd say your mood was actually quite dark when you drew this.

Hmm, can't comment much on my mood the last couple months, I don't think it's varied all the much from the norm. And the letters 321 was the actual address on location of where I drew most of this from. The print on the story window was the last thing for me to draw, and I think it's a good representation of the priorites of most modern living. This is a good deal of the reason for the guitar player's discontent, and his wish to return "To the Country", something akin to "Back to Nature".
