Artist's description:

The south side of Chicago still has the gritty urban feel that you can find in Nelson Algren's works. Much of the north side has been redeveloped, polished and overloaded with planters in the streets in recent years to give that side of town a more suburban feel.

This arial view of an alley from the California stop on the Douglas Park L line demonstrates some of that surviving grittiness.

Completed in India ink on Arches 300# hot pressed paper. Since the ink is pigment rather than dye based, it will not fade and since the paper is 100% cotton rag, it will not yellow. It is resistant to UV light and should last for generations.

Materials used:
