The preservation of buildings is an important topic in Chicago at this moment. History is constantly torn apart to make room for a parking garage. So that is what was the influence for the print.
Below are other ideas I had for the exchange...

that didn't make the cut.






This was going to be an etching on steel plate. But I decided to try something with more color.

Still might do this as an etching though.

















This was going to be a 4 color screen print. Black, Grey, Blue and Pale Blue. Just didn't like it.

next!









this is the very basic stage of a design for me. The idea was to make a three dimensional image for a print. I was going add more work to each of the bottoms of the monolith type shapes. but it never pan out the way I wanted it to be. This one was going to be a one color etching with an additional 2 colors of screen print.

but nope.
