The Night Sky Over Brooklyn

Mike Schultz Studio Blog

Recently, I was commissioned to illustrate a passage of a beautiful short story, written by the patron’s sister. Pictured below is the finished artwork, with the Aquarius constellation in the sky.

For this piece, I made several preliminary drawings, both physical and digital, to work out the composition and desired color palette.  I especially enjoyed including the Williamsburg Savings Bank Building to the skyline, as when I lived in Brooklyn, it was the grandiose centerpiece out my living room window.

Pictured below, two detail shots of the finished piece to show the texture of the gouache.
