Where most people look at an urban skyline and see a postcard, illustrator Thomas Lamadieu sees a challenge. The French artist’s SkyArt series uses the blank spaces between rooftops as a canvas for detailed sketches of people, patterns, animals, and anything else that fits into the unique space between structures. The series ingeniously melds the harsh and inorganic lines of a cityscape with the curvy, playful contents of Lamadieu’s own work, resulting in a fusion that works within rather than against its physical boundaries. Click through for a survey of the full SkyArt series; you’ll never look at a rooftop the same.
