The dedication is must take to produce these incredibly detailed city spaces is amazing.
Artist Benjamin Sack uses a 0.05 Staedtler pigment liner to draw each cityscape, patiently rendering the details until there is no ink left. He then uses another pen to continue, and does this for several months until his drawing is complete.
Many of his drawings are huge, one piece ‘A Single Note’, is 12.5 feet long.
From these drawings, it is easy to see that Sack is fascinated with architecture, history, and geography. He has detailed his astute observations on urban sprawl and has also illustrated Gothic-inspired cathedrals. His works also combine the ancient world with a little surrealism, as there is an otherworldly quality to them.
Please see his website for more information.
