Fine art illustration of the Minneapolis City Hall and Hennepin County Courthouse.
The drawing of the Minneapolis City Hall was completed late summer in 1995. By this time, I had already illustrated many of the notable buildings and landmarks, and moved on to drawing some of the less prominent ones, including buildings that held a special interest for me. This is one of those buildings. At the time, the area in front of the courthouse was under construction, and I stuck into the site with a camera and sketchbook to capture images I knew might not be available to me later on down the line. The drawing took about 2-3 weeks to complete. The clock tower shows a time of 10:21 – which represents October 21, the artist’s birthday.
