“Lou’s Toy Store” by Benjamin Plouffe

http://www.benjaminplouffe.com/  Submitted by Steve Strauch  I know this is a simple street scene, but boy, does this look nice!  I really like the composition, the angular shapes.  A nice drawing style can make the mundane look pretty sweet.  According to his website, Benjamin did this piece as a test for environmental landscapes for the movie “Paranorman”
