Announcing the Winner of the #CraftsyCityscape Art Contest!

This July, we asked the members of Bluprint’s art community to create and submit cityscapes in any medium for the #BluprintCityscape Contest, and the result was a compelling glimpse into the places we call home.

The winner of this contest used pen and ink to incredible effect, creating a composition with head-spinning perspective and a spectacular sense of space and dimension. Take a look!

Cityscape Drawing on Bluprint

Bluprint member artistkierstan crafted this dramatic work using one-point perspective, and we love the way it leads the viewer’s eye beyond the expertly drawn architecture to the small sections of sky visible above. This drawing reminds us how important it is to look past the hectic pace of everyday life to admire the natural beauty of the world, no matter how hard it can be to find.

    This is fantastic middle school project I do every year with either 6th, 7th or 8th graders. Well done.
