Metropolis - in stages


Initial sketch on paper


Home in the studio


Drawing and painting commence


Making sure to include all small details


Finished! and named "Metropolis"


Metropolis participating in "Pigs on Parade" in Oak Park, IL
Sponsored by Gloor Realty


Autumn arrived; time for Metropolis to be auctioned off


Auction held at the Pleasant Home in Oak Park, IL
Auction run by the Oak Park Area Arts Council


Metropolis was auctioned off and I never saw him again...until a year ago.
He was relaxing on someone's front porch just a block away from my house.

It definitely is a small world.
