So a friend of mine, an architecture student, came to my room needing to borrow my computer. Even though what he needed ended up failing, we ended up getting into a mini discussion about architecture. Now, I've never been very interested in architecture much. I actually fail at perspective for the most part. (you'll notice that my every piece has a flat or relatively flat back ground) But what he showed me...makes me very interested. The forms of some of these buildings are just beautiful. I'm especially interested in the forms and how they interact in their environment. I'm pretty excited to eventually research more and get inspiration from these structures and potentially finally learn to USE PERSPECTIVE in my pieces...because it'd be nice to be an artist who has a moderate to good sense of space. hmm

Northwest View (I really really really like this view)
Also, looking at these reminded me of a former teacher of mine, Mr. Kieth Perelli. He's an ASTOUNDING artist. Oh my gooooddneeeessss he has an amazing knack for space, placement, color, composition, theme, DETAIL, rendering. He's just... the poo.
Everyyyoneeee should go look at his work. Because, it'll definitely make you not believe it's even real... oh but it is, and its great.
Here is the piece that I was initially reminded of::
